Ac­tor Ravi Kis­han de­nies re­cent re­ports that a Bi­har court has is­sued an FIR against him and ac­tor Sunny Deol for abus­ing god in their up­com­ing film, Mo­halla Assi.

While ac­tors Sunny Deol and Sak­shi Tan­war re­mained un­avail­able for com­ment and Deol’s of­fice main­tained that the ac­tor has not re­ceived a no­tice, Ravi Kis­han (inset) says that they are await­ing the ver­dict of the Cen­sor Board of Film Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion.

“I haven’t re­ceived any le­gal no­tice. I have read about it but noth­ing has come of it. This film is based on a fa­mous old book called Kashi Ka Assi, which is based in Be­naras (present-day Varanasi), and we have worked on that. Re­gard­ing the film, it still has to go to the Cen­sor Board. They are the fi­nal au­thor­ity that can delete and edit scenes or ban the film al­to­gether,” says Ravi.

“It’s too early for me to say any­thing. It’s not re­ally the first time some­one has at­tempted abu­sive lan­guage, it has hap­pened a lot of times in the past. So who­ever has filed the case has seen the un­cen­sored ver­sion,” the 43-year-old ac­tor adds.
