The new list of banned words issued by the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) recently, seems to be causing lot of problems for the directors and movies. After Anushka’s ‘NH 10’, Japinder Kaur’s debut movie ‘Dilliwaali Zaalim Girlfriend’ faced issues while receiving the certification.
‘Dilliwali Zaalim Girlfriend’ has been given a U/A certificate by the censor board after 63 mutes. The mutes included words like ‘saala' and 'saali'. This has not gone well with the director of the film, Japinder Kaur.

Says the miffed director, "If there is no thematic issue, I don't understand the problem in just picking up singular words that are local lingo."
She further adds, "To bring about any change in rules, we should systematically lay down guidelines with time limits. The censor should inform that films going into production now should follow new rules; because they have the space to, not the ones that are already completed and have been in working progress in the last 1-2 years."
Produced by Manjeet Kaur & Tarnpreet Singh, 'Dilliwali Zaalim Girlfriend' stars Divyendu Sharma, Jackie Shroff, Ira Dubey, Prachi Mishra, Pradhuman Singh & others and is set to release on 20th March, 2015.
