Self-censorship has finally arrived in our entertainment industry. Ekta Kapoor whose serials have repeatedly been in the vortex of virulent protests for their prurient content has decided to clamp down her creative freedom
In the new series His Storyy on a marriage going kaput after the husband is discovered to be in a relationship with a man, many of the intimate scenes between the two male actors have been left out on the editing table.
A source reveals, “They had shot a lot more intimate scenes between Satyadeep Mishra and Mrinal Dutt . But finally decided to retain just a couple of kissing shots, and that too very discreetly done.”
Sources say the new code of conduct for the OTT platform is self-censorship. Why wait for trouble before clamping down on controversial content?
