The release date for Bahuparak is coming but the censoring of the film is yet to be done. The Regional Board of Film Certification which is responsible for certification of movies in Kannada is non functional. The board chief Nagendra Swamy has said that if the producers allow he will take Bahuparak and another movie Miss Mallige to Mumbai for censor certification.
On June 30th, 92 of the 99 members of the Regional Board of Film Certification have resigned after their term came to an end. With the current seven members, the board is unable to certify the movies due to lack of Quorum. There is no women among the current seven members of the board. The rules of the censor board clearly says that a film can be certified only by a four member team along with the board chief, out of which atleast two have to be women.
Nagendra informed that he has already sent a request to the state government to appoint more members to board so that it can start functioning again. Once the required number of members are added, the board can resume certifying the movies.
To help with this problem, Nagendra has suggested the producers that the certification of the movie could be done in Mumbai. He quipped, "Both the films are in an urgency to get released. So, we are planning to get the censor done in Mumbai. Many a times we have censored many of Hindi films in Bangalore and like wise we can also get the Kannada films censored in Mumbai. I have already talked to the Mumbai authorities and I will get the films censored if the producers of both the films permits."
