Supernatural film Khamoshiyan has been given an ‘A’ certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and Mahesh Bhatt, the film’s producer, is pleased.

The movie, which has abundant steamy and bold scenes, has been produced by Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt under their Vishesh Films banner.

Lauding the decision, Bhatt said in a statement: “The censor board has come of age. We welcome this decision. Khamoshiyan is an erotic supernatural film and we did not want to tame the product at all.

“That would not be fair to audiences. It is a bold, adult film and we are very happy with the certification.”

Starring Gurmeet Choudhary, Sapna Pabbi and Ali Fazal, the movie will release in India on January 30.
