John Abraham is one relieved actor. His new espionage thriller RAW which opens on Friday was viewed by the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) and cleared with a ‘UA’ certificate. Only two verbal cuts were ordered. The CBFC members really liked the film. There was no objection to any political content.
Although it is a cross-border espionage thriller the film does not indulge in any Paki-bashing. Apparently, the CBFC has been instructed to take a firm stand against shrill jingoistic films indulging in unnecessary hate-mongering. RAW director Robby Grewal, “We were asked to make just two audio cuts. We had to remove two cusswords which we happily did. There were no visual cuts at all.”
