On the refusal of the censor certificate, the director of the movie Sachin Gupta quoted “It’s really shocking that the censor board is refusing such a social crime drama. The movie contains neither abusive language nor violence yet it has been refused. It’s not the first time such social stories are coming up, earlier also film based on social crime were made and got the censor clearance. As an independent filmmaker with a restricted budget, it’s really difficult to come up with such a plot. The film was promoted nationally and was making the headlines in the leading newspaper and media but now we have to wait for the clearance. The film has been published in the revising committee.”
