Actress Alia Bhatt came in support for her mother Soni Razdan’s upcoming film No Fathers in Kashmir, which has been stuck with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for six months now due to a clash over certification.

She took to her social media account urging CBFC to lift the ban.

Earlier many filmmakers, actors and other personalities including Shashi Tharoor, Swara Bhaskar, also came forward in support for Oscar Nominated director Ashvin Kumar’s film.

No Fathers In Kashmir has been in censor trouble for the last almost 6 months after its application in July and it’s first viewing which happened only in October. Both the CBFC and the apex body FCAT have heard the case and maintained to give the film an A certificate.

According to media reports, He has been shuttling between FCAT and CBFC to obtain a ‘U’ certification for his film. According to the makers, the two bodies have been demanding new cuts every time they approach them for a solution. During the last screening for the CBFC, the producers were even declined legal representation and a new panel suggested new cuts which were in contrast to the body’s earlier decision.

The film is a love story of two 16-year-olds set against the backdrop of Kashmir who are individually in search for their missing fathers. The film, according to the filmmakers and its supporters, has no objectionable content and thus the question and argument on its inappropriate A certification.
