In a recent interview to IANS, Manoj said he hopes the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) clears Love Sonia without cutting any portion of the film. “Love Sonia is based on women trafficking and I hope our censor board passes that film as soon as possible and for that, I would like to urge the censor board to not cut any portion of that film because women trafficking is a very big issue of our society and it’s a horrific crime,” Manoj said.

He thinks the team has made a really good film. “Lots of my friends who are directors and have watched it have appreciated the film. Lots of people have seen it at international film festivals,” he said.

“I remember when Demi Moore watched this film in Los Angeles, she wasn’t able to speak for two to three hours after watching it. So that kind of impression... this film leaves on the mind of the audience,” he added. It is scheduled to release on September 14.
