Despite its risque content and double entendre dialogues, Sunny Leone-starrer Mastizaade had a smooth sailing with the censors where it got an adult certificate. The film is still delayed and will come out on January 29 due to certain distribution issues, actor Tusshar Kapoor explained recently.
Asked if issues with the censor board was the reason behind the delay, Tusshar clarified: “We got our censor certificate long back, we got delayed as some distribution issues were there, we didn’t want Hate Story 3 and Mastizaade to come on the same day. It was a mutual decision between the producers.”
“It’s now coming on January 29. Yes, it’s been delayed from December to January, but a month’s delay is not that much.
While Vishal Pandya’s Hate Story 3, starring Zareen Khan, Karan Singh Grover, Daisy Shah and Sharman Joshi is touted as a sex thriller, Milap Zaveri’s Mastizaade is a sex comedy and it stars Sunny Leone in a double role along with Vir Das.
A video teaser of Mastizaade with Sunny Leone in a bikini and stressing that her character’s name was Laila Lele while holding bananas has gone viral. Pictures of Tusshar and Vir from the film — which had a sexual context — were also released.
The film has been raising eyebrows ever since its teaser released in May this year. Even though it got record hits on YouTube, the clip was taken the internet after the censors raised issues about the same. The film received an adult certificate in August.
