The director of Train to Pakistan on why the release of her film ran into trouble

Train to Pakistan was completed several months ago. Why hasn't it been released yet?
The certificate was delivered only late last month though we had all clearances in October. We'd booked 60 theatres and had to cancel them. It happened again the second time. Now it's finally been released in Mumbai.

What exactly did the censors object to?
They wanted 38 cuts. We were agreeable to six audio changes but not to the visual changes. Our stand has been vindicated by the tribunal.
