New Delhi: No sooner the Udta Punjab controversy was lifted from national scrutiny, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has once again found itself in a pickle with Anurag Kashyap's next movie.

Citing that the Kashyap's movie showed a teacher-student relationship in a negative light and exploited the concept, the CBFC has raised red flags about the plot of the film.

Refusing certification to the film, the CBFC said that a teacher was respectable figure in the society and the portrayal of an illicit relationship in the film would denigrate a teacher's position.

The censor board also raised objections about how kids were using filthy dialogue in the movie and about the body gestures in the film.

It is only a matter of time before Anurag Kashyap approaches the court again regarding the matter and renewing the barb with CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani.
