Omerta gets a new release date

Hansal Mehtas gritty, raw, brutal and disturbing Omerta, the film about the global terror activities of Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, has finally been cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification with an ‘A’ certificate.

Mehta, who has in the past fought many brave battles with the Censor Board, was ready for a long grim fight to ensure nothing was tampered with in Omerta. In an earlier interview, he had said he would not allow even a single cut.

However, only one major cut has been ordered. It is the sequence where Sheikh, essayed by actor Rajkummar Rao, is seen urinating in prison while the National Anthem plays outside.

The censor board has asked for the National Anthem to be removed from this offensive scene.—IANS
