The Bangladesh Film Censor Board has deemed director Sajjad Khan's first film 'Sahas' not worthy of public screening.
Members of the censor board watched the movie and made this decision a few days ago, said Secretary of the Film Censor Board Mohammad Mominul Haque.
"The board is in the process of sending an official letter to the film director and producer. They will get the letter in a day or two," said Mominul.
Regarding the reasons for the ban, Mominul said board members found objectionable obscene dialogue, scenes of abuse, and violence in the film.
"The number of these scenes and dialogues is so much in the film that censoring it will mean scrapping most of the scenes and thus the film will lose continuity," added Mominul.
Contacted, Sajjad Khan, the director of the film, said, "We will take a decision after receiving the letter. However, I do not understand why the film was banned and want to know where exactly is the place of objection."
Secretary of the Film Censor Board, Mohammad Mominul Haque, said that after receiving the letter, the director and producer will have 30 days to appeal. If they do not appeal, the film will be banned permanently.
Produced by Shapla Media house, Actress Nazia Haque Orsha, Khairul Basar, Imran, and many others are in the film "Sahas".
