Talking about the film, The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has given Sonakshi Sinha-starrer Khandaani Shafakhana a U/A certificate with no cuts, producer Mrigdeep Singh Lamba said on Monday.
Khandaani Shafakhana, directed by Shilpi Das Gupta, revolves around a woman who inherits a sex clinic from her uncle. "We got a good response from the censor board when they were watching the film. After the screening of the film, they took an extra 15 minutes to decide the certification. There are no cuts given. They also said it is a film that had to be seen by people so they gave us a U/A certificate," Lamba told reporters here at the trailer launch of the film.
Rapper Badshah, who is making his acting debut with Khandaani Shafakhana, said that after working in a film his respect for actors has doubled as he has realised that it is not an easy task. Badshah will be seen playing the role of singer Gabru Ghaatak in the film.
"When I was reading the script I could only see him playing the role of Gabru Ghaatak. I couldn't see anyone else because he did suit the role. He is a cool-dude, flamboyant, cool singer and the way he talks he is very similar to Badshah. I was hoping if he does this film it will be good and later the producer said he is. I was happy about it," Sonakshi Sinha said.
"It is a great film to debut with. My respect for actors has grown immensely after doing this film. I think it (acting) is not an easy job. The whole team was amazing. Sonakshi is a friend and I knew if I go wrong she will be there to help me. I felt I was in a comfortable space. It was a good set-up," Badshah said at the trailer launch of the film.
"They did not allow me to go overboard, they rather asked me to stay natural. For all this, the credit goes to the entire team - Shilpi ma'am (director), our producer Mrig sir (Mrigdeep Singh Lamba) and the writer Gautam as it all start with great writing in a comedy film," Badshah added.
The film marks the acting debut of rapper Badshah. It also stars Varun Sharma, Annu Kapoor, Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Priyanshu Jora. Produced by Lamba, Jain and Bhushan Kumar, the film is slated to be released on August 2.
