Veteran actor Anupam Kher is "shocked" after reading reports that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has asked producers of his next film "Mr.Bhatti On Chutti" to mute dialogues mentioning political leaders George Bush and Manmohan Singh.
"Censor board asks makers of my film 'Mr.Bhatti On Chutti' to mute the names of George Bush and Manmohan Singh. Shocking," tweeted the 57-year-old.
Directed by Karan Razdan, the movie narrates the story of a group of Indian tourists visiting the Lake District in Cumbria, Britain. But they get mixed up in the saga of a missing British woman.
With Anupam in the lead role, the film is slated for release June 21.
"'Mr.Bhatti On Chutti' is a spoof. I play over the top detective who has a peace plan for President Bush. Muting his name will mutilate the film," Kher posted.
