Director Deepa Mehta’s take on domestic violence Videsh starring Preity Zinta has been awarded the A certificate by the Censor Board. The A certification was given not because of any titillating erotica but for excessive violence particularly that inflicted on Preity in the film.
This film is produced by BR Films and its English version Heaven on Earth has already been released overseas.
The essence of the film Videsh is to highlight social issues and domestic violence.
The film is a sensitive portrayal of a young woman who gets married to a man she has never met. She leaves her loving family behind in India and shifts to Canada only to face the harsh realities of life.
Videsh is releasing on March 27.
