No Fathers in Kashmir starring Soni Razdan, Zara Webb, Ashvin Kumar, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Anshuman Jha, and Natasha Mago released on April 5. Directed by Ashvin Kumar, the makers had to fight with CBFC for its release since the past 8 months. After a long wait, it hit the screens this year. It received a great response from the critics. However, the film released with a lot of cuts by the Censor Board. 

The makers have now released the scenes of the films which were edited. About the same, director Ashvin Kumar said, "The first caption the censors made me place in front of the film says: 'This film is inspired by the pervading militancy and terrorism in Kashmir' it is the most bizarre statement and I would never make a statement like that. It goes against the last 10 years of work that I have done in the Kashmir valley. After 8 months of waiting, I must admit I was totally mentally, physically and emotionally exhausted."

 

 

 

He added, "Having made us spend sleepless nights and run from hearing to hearing for 9 months they went about mutilating the film without either logic or legal justification. I have not yet seen my film in the theatre because I am deeply disheartened by what remains.  It took me four years of hard work to make the film. It took the censors seven screenings and six hearings to slash, mutilate and compromise this labour of love."

About these edited scenes, the director shared, "What you are about to watch are scenes that they cut out. Kashmir is in a crisis of compassion. If we are to be compassionate to our fellow citizen in Kashmir, we have to start telling the truth."
