It really seems like some kinder garden people have been appointed as the members of CBFC. Well, we are saying this because CBFC has given Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif starrer a ‘U/A’ certificate, but with two silly cuts.
There are two things in the film that the makers have been told to edit out – scene in which brassiere is seen and a reference to Savita Bhabhi (a comic adult-film character). An angry member from the film’s team said, “Are we living in the Victorian era when women’s innerwear was never spoken of in public? Years ago in 1995 there was a bra shot featuring Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan. And ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ is directed by a woman. So the chances of lingerie being used to titillate the audience are nil.”
“The CBFC asked the producers of ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ to delete a reference to Savita Bhabhi. The name is used in a jokey light-hearted manner in the film. If a porn reference is objectionable then how come Sunny Leone’s name was used in A Flying Jatt?,” the source added.
The source questions, “‘Freaky Ali’, which opens along with ‘Baar Baar Dekho’, features Nawazuddin Siddiqui as a salesperson for men’s lingerie. Are we to presume that it’s okay to show men’s underwear? But not okay to show women’s lingerie?”
Seems like doom has fallen upon the creativity of B-town makers. Let’s hope that some sense instills into Censor Board in future.
