Mumbai: The third film of the 'Murder' series has got a U/A certificate as debutant director Vishesh Bhatt has focused more on storyline rather than bold content.

'Murder', a 2004 erotic thriller directed by Anurag Basu starring Emraan Hashmi, Mallika Sherawat and Ashmit Patel in lead was a huge hit at the box office.

In 2011 came 'Murder 2', directed by Mohit Suri and starring Emraan and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead.

Both the films had got an 'A' certificate from the Indian Censor Board for its erotic subject and content.

"I feel bold necessarily does not mean sensual or sexual content. It means being bold on various counts like showing dramatic content, relevant and hard hitting topics. At Vishesh Films, we are not apologetic of what we are making," Vishesh told PTI.

Now that the Bhatt camp is back with 'Murder 3', its director Vishesh, son of producer Mukesh Bhatt, clears the air over the Censor certificate of the film.

"My intention is to have a good story. We have come up clean in the third instalment of the series. We have got U/A certificate and it is for the first time that a film in 'Murder' series has got it from Censor Board," he said.

"I am happy that the Censor Board saw my point of view and understood that I am trying to convey a good story," he said. .
