However, later, due to 'difference in opinion,' it was suggested that CBFC chairperson Pahlaj Nihalni should review it, reports PTI. A CBFC regional office spokesperson said, "The chairperson of CBFC has decided on the matter. The film has been cleared as per recommendations of the examining committee."

Shunyota, according to Mr Ghosh, is the first film on demonetisation. Shunyota is a full length feature film, merged three short films, two of which had been approved by Censor earlier, PTI earlier reported.
