The much hyped Mammootty starred movie Gangster was in news recently for many reasons. The movie did not reach the expectation and is now getting a luke warm response at the Box Office. The movie which was released in 120 theaters all over India has now landed in another controversy!
It has come to the notice of the Censor Board that many of the posters of the movie did not bear the certification giuven by them. As we all know, Gangster was given an A certification by the Censor Board as it had contents which had intense violence in it. Moreover the movie also used very rude languages.
Now, according to Jacob, executive officer of the Regional Censor Board, it has come to their notice that most of the posters of Gangster do not have the certification. This is against the rules. As per Rule 38 of Cinematograph Rules 1983, any person advertising a film shall indicate the category of certification. Violating the rule is a non-bailable offense under section 7 of Cinematograph Act, 1952.
Now, neither Aashiq Abu, the directorm of the fiolm nor the producers have reponded to this as of now. What will happen to Gangster is yet to be seen!
