Filmmaker Nagesh Kukunoor wants the Censor Board to see his film "Lakshmi", based on human trafficking and child prostitution, in the context in which it has been made.

"I am hoping that they (Censor Board) look at it ('Lakshmi') in context (it has been made). Every line, every gesture and every action taken out of context can be wrong, but when seen in context can be right," Kukunoor said here at the trailer and poster launch of the film.

The film traces the journey of a child prostitute who overcomes several hardships and sets an example for many and there are certain scenes and dialogues in the promo that may pose problems or irk the Central Board of Film Certification or CBFC.

"I am really hoping that we get them on our side and get them to see it in the context because the story of heroism doesn't show, if you don't show what she has been put through first," he said.

"If you completely sanitize and play safe with, then it doesn't make any sense when she stands up in court (in the film). So I am hoping they see it in that context, but it is something that we will have to deal with when we will show the film to the board," added the acclaimed filmmaker.

Slated to release Jan 17 next year, "Lakshmi" marks the Bollywood debut of singer Monali Thakur.
