Board taking its time reviewing controversial docu

MUMBAI — Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11″ will miss its Oct 15 opening date in India, while the country’s ultra-careful film censors give the doc a second look.

“The film is controversial and hence we want it to be reviewed again,” said Y.N. Engineer, regional officer of the Indian Censor Board. “We are just being very cautious about it.”

Films normally take two weeks to pass the censors.

“We would have loved to release the film on 9/11. Now we just want to get the film out as soon as possible,” said Sarabjit Singh, general manager of distribber Paramount Films of India.
