Farhan Akhtar starrer Fakir of Venice gets a green signal from CBFC
In the past couple of months, getting a film cleared by Central Board of Film Certification has become an uphill task for filmmakers. From Udta Punjab to Haraamkhor, and more recently, Lipstick Under My Burkha and Padmavati, films have faced the brunt of CBFC’s scissors. However, the makers of Farhan Akhtar – Annu Kapoor starrer, Fakir of Venice, were pleasantly surprised when the film was cleared with a U/A certificate.
Fakir of Venice, which was supposed to mark Akhtar’s acting debut, is based on the story of two men who try to con the European art world. Annu Kapoor plays a Muslim who poses as a ‘Baba’ and the makers of the film were worried if that might raise a red flag during the certification of the film.
The film has been Directed by adman Anand Surapur, produced by October Films and distributed by Yusuf Shaikh.
