The filmmaker of the upcoming Bollywood movie “Political War,” Mukesh Modi, is quite upset with the Censor Board of India. Due to the refusal of a certificate, the film is unable to be released in cinemas in India. Mukesh Modi has been in India for the past three months to get the film censored, but it was ultimately rejected by the revising committee on December 22, 2023.

According to Mukesh Modi, the initial title of the film was “2024 Election War,” but it was objected to, and later, they changed it to “Political War.” However, even after submitting the film to the revising committee without a show-cause notice, it was rejected. The reason given was that the faces of the film’s actors resembled Indian politicians.

Mukesh Modi has now appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that there is no time for filmmakers like him and that the “response from the Censor Board officials is unsatisfactory”. He urged the Prime Minister to appoint competent people to the Censor Board and improve the system, as it wastes a lot of time and money for filmmakers.

Mukesh Modi emphasized that his film aims to inspire the youth, and the government should pay attention to it. He highlighted the inconsistency in the Censor Board’s decisions, approving violent films while hindering the release of a film with a positive message.

The filmmaker also expressed concern about the damage caused to his film due to the censorship process. Despite the challenges, he affirmed that the content of the film is excellent and conveys a message about corrupt politicians attempting to destabilize India with the help of external powers.

Mukesh Modi concluded by stating that the film will be released in overseas theaters on February 16 and after that, it will be released on OTT platforms. He suggested that the Censor Board should be abolished, citing the absence of such a board in Hollywood. The film, produced under the banner of Indie Films World, was shot in Mumbai, Varanasi, Lucknow, and the United States.

The film’s story shows that the Indian election is coming up and corrupt politicians are raising funds from outsiders who are not aligned with the agenda of growing India into a prosperous nation. “The film is a political fiction story where we get to see the corrupt side of politics, starring Seema Biswas, Rituparna Sengupta, Milind Gunaji, Shishir Sharma, Prashant Narayan, Aman Verma, Abhay Bhargav, Jiten Mukhi, Prithvi Zutshi, Subhashis Chakraborty, Dev Sharma, Kanan Malhotra, Gaurval Amlani, Ravi Sharma, Sweety Walia, Anu Sharma, Twinkle Saini, Arun Bakshi, Bill Mcandrew, Isaac Platizky and many more,” says Mukesh Modi.

“When India became an Independent Nation in 1947, it granted great power to each man and woman – power of ‘right to vote’ and a right to select their leader. Leaders are to serve the best interests of the nation and its citizens. They are the hope of a better life and future. However, with the passing of time, some politicians changed the meaning of politics. Present politics turned out to be a battle- “A Battle for a Throne”. Some politicians today want to enjoy authority over people while collecting loads of wealth during their reign,” says the filmmaker.

​“Political War” is showcasing a story for the 2024 Indian election of how conspiracies are made in the country and how foreign support is taken to turn citizens against their own nation while putting the country at stake.
