At the pre release meet of ‘Vaira’ director Navarasan was also in pent up frustration. The worry for him is of course ‘A’ certificate and the actress Priyanka Malnad abstaining from publicity.

The regional censor is unquestionable. One of the censor board members said there is no need to give ‘A’ certificate out of five members who saw ‘Vaira’ – the 3 seconds scene of heroine Priyanka Malnad has good justification. There are films of other languages that is ten time more in revealing costumes. Such films get U/A certificate.

As a director I obeyed my producer Dharmasri Manjunath. The lip lock scene shot for the film was cut off before going to censor. At the time of discussion of the subject producer Manjunath gave me some advice which I incorporated.

We have to do films for censor board or for the audience is the question in the mind of Navarasan. At the KFCC when censor board Srinivasappa was invited for discussion, he could not answer any question raised by producers. It is high time producers should join together is advising the regional censor officer. We have seen backless Tamanna in ‘Bahubali’ but it gets U/A certificate. For a few seconds of such a scene in ‘Vaira’ it is given A certificate. This is utter nonsense he says.

Today I am addressing the problems of all producers. We should all get together in fight against censor board. Censor asked me to cut off ‘Modi’ word but in ‘Jai Lavakusha’ Telugu film there is so much with that name. Uniform censor policy is what we expect says Navarasan.

‘Avru Namma Sevakaru – we deposit Rs.30000 for a censor of the film’. The face book promotion is also prohibited now. An additional worry caused by censor says Navarasan.

Krishnamurthy Kavathar associated with ‘Vaira’ film a senior stage actor also attacked the attitude of regional censor officer. We have films like Utsav, Bandit Queen….various others very liberal in showcasing the beauty. This censor has no sense. They work like medical representatives.

Sujith son of Dharmasri Manjunath aged 16 years is not able to see his film ‘Vaira’ in which he acted for the first time because of ‘A’ certificate. He has performed so well in a touching scene in the role of Chintu says director Navarasan.
