Censor officer to sue Madan Patel

According to the Censor Board, Patel had requested it to clear two songs to be released as promos. Patel had alleged that the Regional Officer sought a bribe from the director to clear the songs. Terming the allegation ‘cheap publicity stunt’, the CBFC regional board members claimed that it was a false accusation levelled against the officer.

A defamation case was filed in the High Court against the director of the film and the court has stayed the release of the film. Speaking to the media, Nagaraj said: “Since the High Court has stayed the release of the film we are not sure whether the two songs submitted for approval to be used as promos can be cleared. We have sought legal opinion from Mumbai.”

Last week, Patel had alleged that the CBFC, KFCC and the Karnataka Film Producers have been ineffective in protecting the interests of the producers.
