Trishna makers apply for A Certificate

It's not often that filmmakers want to categorize their film with an adult tag, especially when aiming to make the maximum from the audience. Well, such is not the case with the film Trishna. Freida Pinto's forthcoming film Trishna, directed by Michael Winterbottom, has apparently applied for an 'A' certificate from the censor board.

It is learnt that producer Sunil Bohra, contrary to popular opinion, feels that the Censor Board has become highly progressive. Since the film revolves around a love story with a sad ending with sequences that have references to the Kamasutra, the makers have applied for an 'A' Certificate.

Trishna is an adaptation of Thomas Hardy's novel, Tess of the d'urbervilles., which opened at IFFI Goa last year. The story of the film starts off as a tale of romance, but later turns into a lustful affair in which Riz's character exploits Trishna (Freida) in the name of love.

Shot in Hindi and English, Trishna is slated to release in July and features cameos by Anurag Kashyap, Kalki Koechlin and music composer Amit Trivedi.
