Ranveer-Alia Kisses Never Cut

Reports have been  doing  the round  of how Ranveer Singh and  Alia Bhatt’s liplocks in Zoya Akhtar’s  wonderfulGully Boy have been curtailed  by the Central Board  Of Film Certification(CBFC).

 However a source very close  to the  film completely denies any such censorial intervention.

“The  truth  is just the opposite.The censor board  has been  extremely  liberal. There are  no  cuts in the  kisses. The language was  never offensively profane.So we  don’t know where  the stories  of  the  curtailed  kisses are  coming from.In fact  there are  lengthy liplocks between Alia  and Ranveer  in  the  film that have been left intact. There  is also a kiss between  Kalki Koechlin and Ranveer which  the  producers volunteered  to remove. But the  censor board asked them to  let it,” says  the informed  source.

Tushar Karmakar, CEO  of  the  CBFC, reiterates, “There have been a few minor modifications in the film, in the light of Guidelines, which were readily agreed upon by the filmmakers. We do not see any reason for controversy into it.”

Former CBFC chairperson  Pahlaj Nihlani adds. “When I  was  at the helm so much kissing was not permitted in aUA film. I  don’t think parents  of  young children  are  comfortable watching  so much intimacy  with their kids.”
