The Siddharth Malhotra-Katrina Kaif starrer Baar Baar Dekho has been granted a ‘UA’ certificate by the Censor Board Of Film Certification(CBFC).
But only after a shot of a brassiere was removed from the film.
An angry member of the Baar Baar Dekho team expostulates, “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.”
Apparently the censor board refused to certify the film until the “offensive” shot was removed.
Another cut that the CBFC demanded was to do with a naughty reference to ‘Savita Bhabhi’ the comicbook porn character whose sexual exploits are devoured on the internet by millions of her fans.
Says the source, “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 A Flying Jatt?”
Contradictions apart, Baar Baar Dekho has now been certified by the CBFC with a ‘UA’ certificate, the bra visual and ‘Savita Bhabhi’ reference duly knocked off.
