Mumbai: Rani Mukerji has applied for her film Mardaani’s re-certification. The film was cleared with an ‘A’ certificate because of the use of violence and abusive language. The censor board also had problems with a particular scene in the film. They said that the makers would have to remove or tone it down for a U/A certificate but the team did not budge.

Rani’s good friend Aamir Khan, who has seen the film, feels that it is not suitable for a ‘U’ certificate. He said, “There are certain words in the film that I wouldn’t want my children to hear. There’s violence too. So, if I want to use that kind of content, then I will ensure that the film is appropriately certified and advertised as an adult film.”

 

Aamir clarified that he has got nothing against Rani. “She may have a different opinion and I respect that, she is a close friend. But I think we should be much more careful about the kind of violence we are exposing kids too. I completely believe in freedom of speech. I’m a creative person but I have a responsibility. Children need to have a space where they can grow freely without violence being shoved down their throats in large doses.”
