Rakshit Shetty and Hariprriya starrer Ricky, finally gets a clearance from the censor board with an U/A certificate along with seven mutes and the makers have been instructed to make a couple of changes. Debut director Rishab Shetty felt relieved after he came out of the censor office, when he shared with us, the tension he went through at the censor board. “I never had this kind of tension even during my exam time, which I went through while my first film was watched by the censor members. I was anxious to know what their thoughts were while watching the film," says Rishad, who admits that the film did have some sensitive issues and he made sure to balance it at the script level.
"The fact is that when the issue is about Naxalities and police, there will be issues raised, which I was worried about. Thankfully, it went on smoothly,” he added, “Now that I will be getting the certificate in my hand in a couple of days, it is time for us to do the talk about Ricky.”
Produced by SV Babu, the film, which was initially planned to release on 22nd of this month has now been postponed by a week. It will come to theatres on January 29. “A lot of films are coming at the same time, and they are facing theatre problems. Since the film has already created a hype, we didn’t want to hurry. We are looking for a good number of theatres and that’s the reason for us to postpone Ricky by a week,” he says.
