'iSmart Shankar': Flaunting the 'A' rating
The Censor Board has given 'A' certificate to 'iSmart Shankar' and the makers are seemingly happy about this. At least, that's what they want us to believe. At a time when the A-rated 'Kabir Singh' is scorching the box-office, it seems the certificate is not quite a problem to them.
Puri Jagannadh is selling the movie as the ultimate A-rated one because it is as potent as 'Pokiri', 'Businessman' and 'Desamuduru' put together - as per the makers.
As for Ram Pothineni, he says, "The Censor Board says it’s “A” kickass film! Statutory Warning: Cigarette Smoking, Consumption of Alcohol and Following #iSmartShankar in real life are injurious to health. Be ismart enough to realize that he’s “A” fictional character." So, getting 'A' is akin to being a kickass film? Just wow!
Starring Nabha Natesh, Nidhhi Agerwal, and Satyadev in different roles, the mass sci-fi entertainer will release on July 18.
