Nobody had a problem with our film however at that point came that one individual who doesn’t believe this film should work. That individual is strong enough that on their order this is happening.”The chief said that one can battle with the principles. “Assuming the blue pencil board was to say that we want to fix specific issues in the film which is the reason they have chosen to boycott it or they request that we erase specific discoursed, quiet them, or cut scenes relying on the prerequisite that it will debut, we will fix it and set up the film in a moment. Yet, when it’s said that you don’t have the consent to clear the film, we truly don’t have deals with that.”
