Censor Board is back in the news, you guys! After Bollywood fought a huge battle with the board for Udta Punjab, we assumed things would get better when it came to censorship. However, we just learnt of the cuts made in the movie Baar Baar Dekho from a report in DNA and we’re not impressed!
Reportedly, the censor board wants to cut the shot a woman’s bra and another one where the fictional character of Savita Bhabhi is mentioned. Their source was quoted saying:
We don’t live in times where women’s innerwear is never spoken of in public. In fact, even as early as 1995, there was a scene featuring Kajol in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. Moreover, the film is directed by a woman (Nitya Mehra). To assume she’d use the lingerie scene for titillation is absurd. We were asked to delete the reference. The name is used in a light-hearted manner in the film. If a porn reference is objectionable, how was Sunny Leone’s name used in A Flying Jatt?
Hide thy bras, ladies!
