Thank God, a new film starring Ajay Devgn has managed to avoid any controversy. According to sources, the filmmakers have modified Ajay’s character’s name from Chitragupt to CG and Yamdoot’s to just YD. This modification, along with three others, was made by the filmmakers before submitting the film for certification.
Friday, the Indra Kumar-directed film obtained a U/A rating from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). Sidharth Malhotra plays a man who suffers a near-death experience and must confront all of his vices to be given a second opportunity. Rakul Preet Singh appears as well.
After the release of the first teaser, numerous individuals protested the use of Chitragupta’s name. As depicted in the film, Chitragupta is the Hindu deity of records and accounting in Hindu mythology. However, it now appears that the creators have chosen a safer path. The Supreme Court has received a petition seeking an injunction against the film’s release. The case will be heard on November 21, after the court recently refused to rank it as an urgent matter.
Additionally, three adjustments have been made. One includes obscuring the logo of a liquor brand within the frame, while the other involves altering the viewpoint of a temple picture. The third change is to the content of the disclaimer at the opening of the film. Additionally, the length of time the disclaimer appears on the screen has been lengthened so that the public can read it.
Thank God is scheduled to be released in theatres on Diwali, October 25. The film will compete with the action-adventure flick Ram Setu, starring Akshay Kumar. According to industry sources, bookings for both films began on a positive note on Thursday, with Ram Setu currently leading by a hair.
