Explosive documentary on Arvind Kejriwal asked to get NOC from Kejriwal
VinayShuklaandKhushbooRankas much-discussed documentary An Insignificant Man which was stopped by Examining Committee(EC) andRevising Committee (RC) of theCensor Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) was viewed personally on Wednesday by the chairperson ofCBFC. PahlajNihlanipassed the film with a UA and no cutsBut a huge rider. The films producerAnandGandhi ( The Ship Of Theseus fame) and co-directors Shukla and Ranka have been asked to get NOCs (No Objection Certificates) from everyone concerned, includingKejriwalhimself. According to sources in theCBFCthe film is potentially damaging to the image ofKejriwaland hisAAMparty. It has extensive footage of behind-the-scenes working and manoeuvrings in theAAMparty andKejriwalis not shown in a very authoritative light. On the contrary he comes across as someone who is constantly uncertain and needs to be advised minutely on every move. Its surprising thatKejriwaland theAAMParty opened the doors of their party functioning to a film that basically demolishes the Party and its leaders image, says a CBFC source. When questioned directlyNihalanisaid, Yes, weve asked the makers of this documentary to furnishNOCs from the people whom theyve documented. This is standard procedure. Prior to this when a film on the Prime Minister entitled ModiKaGaon was brought to us we asked for anNOCfrom the PMs office.
