Toilet Ek Prem Katha Ordered 8 Verbal Cuts, Pulled Up For Obscenity

Even if you are making a  film about ‘Swach Bharat’ you can still be pulled up for flinging forth  some frothy filth.

So Akshay Kumar has discovered. His  much vaunted, BJP-approved Toilet Ek Prem Katha has been  ordered as many as  8 verbal cuts before being certified with a ‘UA’ certificate.

Some  of these cuts,say sources from the CBFC, find Akshay Kumar making crude statements.

“In one sequence Akshay Kumar is heard telling his screen-wife, ‘Tumne mujhe 3 baar jagaya hai. Main koi saandh hoon kya(you’ve woken me up thrice…am I a bull?)….In another sequence a character says he goes to pee with a rassi(thread) around his ears. He means the sacred thread, the Brahminical janao.And  we saw no reason for something with such sanctity attached  to it being referred to so facetiously.”

In  addition 4 expletives including ‘haraami’ have been ordered out.

For those who thought getting past the CBFC would be a cakewalk for Toilet Ek Prem Katha just because  it’s got the Prime Minister’s tweet approval and tax exemption in BJP-run states,this is a good lesson in democratic censorship .
