The prolific director of the 1980s and  90s ,Anil Sharma  is  back, this time to launch his  own son Utkarsh in the  film, Genius.

The nepotism debate  doesn’t perturb him excessively.  “My son Utkarsh’s talent will speak for him. I don’t have to defend  my  right to  launch my own son.  It is my prerogative  to  give my son the chance  to prove  himself. At the same time I know he will go only as far his talent and luck takes him,” says  the  director.

In  the meanwhile Anil Sharma is  thrilled with  the response accorded to  Genius by the  Central Board of  Film Certification(CBFC). “I sailed through the censorboard without any hitch at all .They asked me for no cuts at all except one verbal beep which I happily complied with. As  for  the  allegations that the censor board takes  too much time  to issue certificates, I want to say this is not the experience I  had. I was issued  my ‘UA’ certificate well in time. Those  who complain about delays  probably submit their films  late and then expect  the CBFC to break the queue for them.”
