Karthi`s Venkat Prabhu directed Biriyani was given a UA certificate by the censors. The producers of the film Studio Green went to Revising Committee (RC) as they wanted a U certificate to get entertainment tax exemption.
But Revising Committee members, mainly made up of film industry veterans, rejected the appeal. They endorsed the original censor board decision to give it an UA certificate for its adult theme.
Biriyani is the story of a playboy played by Karthi who goes about wooing girls. The censor feels that there is enough adult content in the film to be given an UA. The film has Karthi, Hansika, Premgi and Ramki in the lead with music by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
Now Biriyani will release on December 20 , for the big Christmas weekend. Since it has a UA certificate, the film will have to pay entertainment tax.
