Saif Ali Khan’s Race 2 is too racy for television

According to CBFC the film is unsuitable for the channel’s audience even after cuts

Since its release in 2013, Race 2 has been seen on the small screen multiple times.

But the film starring Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Anil Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez, has been deemed too racy for the national broadcaster.

The Central Board of Film Certification(CBFC) has decided that the thriller is not appropriate for screening on Doordarshan. The board is of the opinion that the film is unsuitable for the channel’s audience even after cuts because its very theme is too risqué.

The producer of the film, Ramesh Taurani, approached the Examining Committee, followed by the Revising Committee hoping they’d reconsider. He even approached the Tribunal but could not get a favourable verdict.

“For Doordarshan we need a U certificate, but they did not give us that. I did suffer a minor loss in satellite right revenue but there is nothing I can do,” said Taurani.

When contacted, CBFC CEO, Rakesh Kumar said, “ Yes, Race 2 will not be screened on Doordarshan.”
