Controversies of Prakash Jha

In 2003, when Atal Bihari Vajpayee's NDA government was at the centre, they asked Jha to make a film based on Jayaprakash Narayan, a famous political leader and activist who launched a mass movement against Indira Gandhi's government in 1974.   He made the film called 'Loknayak Jayaprakash' and presented it to the Prasar Bharti Corporation who promised him to air it on 11 October, JP's birth anniversary. But at that time, Congress-led UPA government came into power and asked him to 'modify' the film and show the Emergency in a positive light, which Jha found absolutely wrong.   As Jha couldn't do much and had to make some minor changes after which Prasar Bharati telecasted his controversial film 'Lok Nayak' on 6 December 2004.   In 2013, he lodged an F.I.R. in Kolkata and Patna against a person who was impersonating as his son, Priyaranjhan Jha, and had done a fraud by taking money from someone by falsely promising to have organized an event on 14 August 2013 for the promotion of his film 'Satyagraha.'   His co-produced film 'Lipstick Under My Burkha' was supposed to release in January 2017, but after the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) refused a certificate, due to the sexual scenes, abusive words, audio pornography and a bit sensitive touch about one particular section of society, he appealed it to the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT). The FCAT viewed the film suggested some more cuts and directed the CBFC to issue an A certificate to the movie after the changes, after which the film was released on 21 July 2017.
