Leaked Footage from Mohalla Assi is Uncensored
Bhojpuri superstar Ravi Kishan, who is essaying a key role in Sunny Deol starrer Mohalla Assi, says that its abuse-laden trailer is a leaked and uncensored version of the original one.
The trailer has attracted the ire of a Varanasi-based social organisation, who has lodged an FIR against Sunny and filmmaker Chandraprakash Dwivedi for the alleged use of abusive language in the film.
“The trailer which has found its way on the internet is an uncensored video. I’m baffled how the trailer was stolen from the editing room and how it was splashed on the web. We had tried our best to keep it under wraps, but I don’t know what kind of thinking this offender has who is out to destroy cinema,” Ravi said.
Further commenting about the much talked about scene where a character is seen enacting Lord Shiva, he said: “This scene would definitely not feature in the film as I myself am a staunch devotee of lord Shiva. You’ll get better clarity if you read Kashinath Singh’s Upanyas as to why such scenes were shot.”
The leaked trailer shows the 58-year-old actor using abusive language, and also contains explicit scenes involving sex and drugs.
