Savita Bhabhi reference in Baar Baar Dekho upsets Censor Board!
Mumbai: Makers of Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif starrer film Baar Baar Dekho are not pleased with the Censor Board after it run the scissors on a sensuous ‘bra shot’ filmed on Katrina.
CBFC even asked to remove a scene which has a reference of popular adult comic character Savita Bhabhi.
Sources close to the filmmakers say that lingerie shots are used in the films now-a-days and it is usual for the Indian audience and hence the cut isn’t justified.
“We don’t live in times where women’s innerwear is never spoken of in public. In fact, even as late as 1995, there was a scene featuring Kajol in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. Moreover, BBD is directed by a woman (Nitya Mehra). To assume she’d use the lingerie scene for titillation is absurd,” says a source.
Over the Savita Bhabhi issue, the source said that when a porn star Sunny Leone can become an integral part of the industry, what is wrong in just giving a reference to adult character?
The source was quoted as saying, “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?”
Meanwhile, directed by Nitya Mehra, Baar Baar Dekho (BBD) is all set for September 9 release.
