Actor Shahid Kapoor is hopeful that his film "Kabir Singh", which chronicles the life of a self-destructive surgeon, gets a U/A certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). The remake of hit Telugu film "Arjun Reddy", the film chronicles a surgeon who goes berserk after his ex-lover marries someone else.
"We are hoping to get a 'U/A' certificate. We don't know if we will or not. We believe there is no reason for us not to get a 'U/A' certificate. I think it is important that today we are able to tell stories honestly, without sugar-coating them," Shahid told reporters.
"The audience is mature enough to understand that. I think the censor board should also pay heed to that. There is nothing that is off putting in this film, it is an honest depiction," he added.
