Censor Board Won’t Touch Ayushmann’s Smooch

Okay, Ayushman Khurrana and his onscreen  gay partner Jitendra  Kumar can  exhale now. Their  smacking smooch  in Indian cimema’s first mainstream  gay film Shubh MangalZyada Saavdhan is not only intact in  the trailer , it will also go scotfree  in  the film itself

Says a  source close to the  CBFC, “No member  of the censor board had any  objection to the same-sex kiss in  the trailer. However the expletive that  Gajraj Rao(playing  Jitendra Kumar’a father) utters when he sees his son kissing with his male lover, has been  beeped.”

Says  a  source close to producer Aanand  Rai, “Aanand was very apprehensive about the  kiss. He wanted a ‘U’  certificate for  the trailer  of Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. And for that he was anxious that the  CBFC would ask for the kiss to be removed. But no one objected to the kiss,  only to the gaali that Gajraj Rao utters when the kiss happens.”

According to very reliable  sources  the  CBFC has no  plans  of removing the kiss from  the  film when  it is  presented to the CBFC.

“They are looking at  it as  a love story, not a  GAY love story, a  sure sign that  the censor board  in India has  evolved,” says the source.

In  all likelihood the  film will walk away  into the theatres with a ‘UA’ certificate  which means  curious  children accompanied by adults can ask why Ayushmann Khurrana is  kissing that uncle on his  lips.And the parents had better have an answer ready.
