It could be because of its unusual starcast or its tongue twisting long name Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, that the film indeed is one of the most awaited films of the recent times. The film which releases next month has been given an 'A' certificate by Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), that has made Vishal Bhardwaj reasonably upset.

The reason stated for the 'A' certificate is that in the film, Pankaj Kapur's (who plays one of the central roles) character named 'Mandola', as a habit, keeps on repeating the word, 'Paincho Paincho' in the film, which sounds very close to an abusive term in Hindi.

But Vishal defends his stand stating that it isn't an abusive word and that it's meant to be hilarious, not offensive. He added that one shouldn't kill the flavor of the region for one word that sounds like a 'gaali' as it is not an adult film. He says that the phrase is not offending, but is amusingly musical! He argues that while the society has accepted an extremely popular family restaurant in Bandra called 'Papa Pancho', then why cant 'paincho'! That's the reason he has decided to appeal the decision passed by the CBFC and is planning to take it up with the Revising Committee on 17 December.

Lastly, he said that he will request the Censor Board to have a look at the film again as he has not accepted the 'A' rating by the Regional Officer and that he is taking it to the Revising Committee.

Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, is a film that stars Imran Khan, Anushka Sharma, and Pankaj Kapur in the lead roles and releases on 11 January, 2013.
