32 0

Vijay Deverakonda and Mrunal Thakur, the dynamic duo of the upcoming rom-com “Family Star,” had fans buzzing with excitement. However, a recent hurdle has emerged, causing a bit of a stir in the lead-up to the movie’s release.

CBFC’s Objection to Vulgar Language

As the film underwent screening by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) in Hyderabad, it faced objections due to the use of swear words. Despite its title suggesting a family-friendly affair, “Family Star” found itself under scrutiny for its choice of language. The CBFC particularly took issue with five swear words peppered throughout the movie, especially in scenes set in the United States backdrop.

U/A Certification and Necessary Edits

Following the CBFC screening, “Family Star” was granted a U/A certificate. However, this came with a condition – certain swear words had to be muted to make the film suitable for family audiences. The certification, which caused a buzz on social media upon its release on April 2, 2024, mentioned the movie’s duration to be approximately 2 hours, 43 minutes, and 20 seconds. The five cuts specified included not only excessive use of liquor labels in one song but also the five swear words that raised eyebrows.
