Mumbai: Anurag Kashyap’s upcoming film “Mukkabaaz” has been given a U/A certificate and the filmmaker has said that he was grateful to have an empowering experience with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).

“In times of uncertainty and great doubt, I am grateful to actually have a reasonable, rational and empowering experience with the CBFC . ‘U/A’ with one voluntary audio deletion ‘Mukkabaaz’,” Kashyap tweeted on Tuesday.

The filmmaker said he was asked about his intentions to make “Mukkabaaz”.

“And I spoke freely and fearlessly and was accorded the respect of a filmmaker by the CBFC. Last time that happened was ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’. The Voluntary audio deletion was the difference between the ‘A’ certificate and the U/A  #Mukkabaaz.”

Kashyap thanked CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi and Minister of Information and Broadcasting
