Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola gets U/A certificate
Vishal Bhardwaj's upcoming romantic comedy Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola has beem given U/A certificate from the Censor Board of Film Certification. Produced by Bhardwaj along with Fox Star Studios, this is the first film of the filmmaker which has got the U/A rating, making the movie fit for family audiences, including those under 18. All the 47-year-old director's previous hits - 7 Khoon Maaf, Ishqiya and Kaminey had got the A certificate.

"I've always wanted my films to reach out to a wider audience. Finally with MKBKM, not restricted by the 'A' rating, I'll be able to do so. I'd like to thank the CBFC for giving this rating as it's a bright and happy film," Bhardwaj said in a statement.

Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola had initially run into trouble with Pankaj Kapur's character Pancho, which the CBFC felt, sounded like a Hindi expletive. The film, which is set in a village of Haryana, also stars Anushka Sharma and Imran Khan in lead roles. The film hits theatres on January 11.
