According to the censor board, the movie is pending clearance on 'humanitarian' grounds as a shot features a cow passing by in a frame.
"I understand any shot of an animal in a film has to be cleared by the Animal Welfare Board. For our film Rakht Charitra we even had to get clearance from the Board for random street dogs that wandered into the frame. Fair enough. There's a shot of a cow in Mausam. We are ready to get a clearance from the Animal Welfare Board for it," said Sheetal Talwar, producer.
"The censors are welcome to hold back the trailer with the cow, until we get clearance. But why hold back all five trailers?" said Talwar.
"The regional officer in Mumbai, JP Singh, has examined the promos, and cleared all the same," said chief executive officer, censor board, Pankaja Thakur.
The Animal Welfare Board's NOC(no-objection certificate) is required in order to show animals on screen," said Singh.
