The Nawazuddin and Shweta starrer revolve around a teacher-student romance and the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) refused to certify it. The makers approached the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) in August, which reportedly cleared the film with a U/A certificate on Wednesday.
Interestingly, the film will clash with Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Ok Jaanu. On the work front, Nawaz, for now, is busy promoting his upcoming film Raees. The actor will also appear in Munna Michael, which also stars Tiger Shroff. Apparently, Nawaz is learning some dancing with the Baaghi actor.
Meanwhile, the Masaan fame actor Shweta Tripathi has also signed another project with Anurag, called the Zoo. The film will be completely shot on iPhone 6S. Kashyap is producing the film along with filmmaker Shlok Sharma, who directed Shweta for a film titled Haramkhor.
