CBFC Slams Down On Title Bank Chor ,Says It Sounds Like “Behen Ch..”

Asks Producers To Clean Out

It looks  like after their scion Yash Chopra’s death , Yash Raj Films has decided to go all-out to be cheesy and  dirty.Aditya Chopra’s Befikre last year was about Ranveer Singh and Vani Kapoor’s on-screen sexual escapades with  full-on sexual innuendos.

Now with their latest product Bank Chor, Yash Raj  has gone worse.The title of the film itself bears an uncanny phonetic resemblance to an obscene  Hindi abuse pertaining to the abused man’s sister.

The  Censor Board  Of  Film Certification(CBFC) clamped down on the ‘clever’(or so, the film’s makers thought)  play of words and asked the makers of Bank Chor to re-dub the two words in the title every time it’s uttered, so that it doesn’t sound like ‘bahen c…d’

Says an outraged  source from the CBFC, “The makers of Bank Chorthought they were being very clever by calling their film by a title that sounds like ‘bahen c…d’ . They thought,  every time RiteishDeshmukh and  the other actors said ‘Bank Chor’ the audience  would roar in  delight by the similarity to the sisterly abuse.”

The  CBFC refused to  certify the film until the title was re-dubbed everywhere it was used.

“We asked them  to re-do the title not just in the film but also in the trailers. Everywhere they used ‘Bank Chor’ like the Hindi abuse ‘bahen c…d’ . This was  a kind of USP in their humour. We were sorry to  play the spoilsport. But this was a most uncalled-for and recurring obscenity  in the film.We asked them to clean it out.”

Bank Chor’s leading man Riteish Deshmukh is no stranger to smutty comedy.  It is baffling why Yash Raj Films with its distinguished track record would want to invest its reputation in  an endeavour where the main source of humour is the film’s title which sounds more like a profanity than a  bank heist.
