Raveena Tandon and her film Maatr are all over the news as the censor board officials walked out of the screening citing the film was way too disturbing. Raveena has hit out hard at the board and said “I do not understand why… as we attempted to show a mirror to the society. Having said that, I understand that the CBFC is also bound by laws that go back to the 1970s. We have gone ahead, but they are still following the same law. Perhaps, there comes the problem. There is a need for law amendment.”
Directed by Ashtar Sayed, Maatr deals with rape and violence against women in the Indian society. Raveena plays a mother of one of the victims in the film. Reports say she has given an award winning performance.
