The censor board has instructed the makers of Mumbhai Connection to have 32 bleeps in the hour-and-a-half long film. Writer and director of the film, Atlanta Nagendra says, he had no choice but to consider the censored version .
"They have asked me to mute cuss words. They have even instructed me to bleep the word 'stupid'. I really don't understand the reason behind this. I have watched other films which have the same words that I have used in this film. While they have passed those, the question of vulgarity is raised only in Mumbhai Connection. I did not want to argue with the board and hence will be abiding by their rules before I release the film on August 22 all across India."
The film has only one song and the audio was released by music director V Harikrishna on Saturday.
Interestingly, the film has a few Hollywood faces.
"Elli Jones, a wrestler by profession has acted in the film along with Dick Mays and Bill Farmer. They have acted in small budget films in Hollywood and have been part of the small screen. I roped these three along with few Indians residing abroad for Mumbhai Connection. I could have used some well known faces but because of visa problems, I had to go with the artistes available. I will be releasing the film in the USA on August 29," he says.
