Censor certificate denied for 'Kalabhamazha'

- Cochin, Aug.22 (NR): 'Kalabhamazha' directed by Suku Menon has been denied a Censor Certificate by the Censor Board.
The reason being cited for this is that permission for the certificate issue has not been granted by the Film Chamber.
Films require a publicity certificate issued by the Film Chamber if they are to be screened in theatres. However, Vinayan had pointed out that there was no such rule, and accordingly his film 'Yakshiyum Njanum' was issued a Censor Certificate.
Suku Menon said that the film was shot on a budget of sixty lakhs. In order to get permission from the Film Chamber, one lakh rupees has to be sumbitted, which is very difficult for small producers like himself, Suku added. If he had that much money, he would buy more negative film rolls instead.
He also said that he plans to approach the High Court against the Censor Board decision.
