The newly revamped Central Board Of Film Certification(CBFC) seems to be keeling over in the effort to prove themselves to be liberated.
A new controversy regarding the wave of liberalism that has hit the CBFC has now erupted with unnamed sections of the film industry wondering how films like Badshaho and Bhoomi were given ‘UA’ certificates in spite of their graphic violent content.
In fact according to a source in the know scenes that had been cut by Nihalani as violating the guideline were added after his departure.
“In Badshaho there is a sequence where a barebacked Ileana d’Cruz playing a Maharani was seen making love in the open with her orderly played by Ajay Devgan.Nihlani had not only ordered this scene cut he had also instructed the producers to cover up Ileana’s back on the posters. After his departure the barebacked love-making scene was back inBadshaho,” says the source.
This is not the only instance of the censor board jumping to the other side of fence to prove their new liberal attitude.
Omung Kumar’s Bhoomi which was certified as fit for viewing by an adult audience for its sexually loaded content and graphic rape images, was given a ‘UA’ only in India.
