The censor board is back in news for suggesting three cuts in the upcoming Katrina Kaifstarrer Baar Baar Dekho. According to reports, the board has objected to a shot of brassiere and a scene with reference to the pornographic cartoon character ‘Savita Bhabhi’.
When contacted, Anurag Srivastav, CEO, Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), confirmed that board has suggested cuts but said it was part of the normal certification process.
“We have suggested threefour cuts for this film (‘Baar Baar Dekho’). We can’t reveal what cuts and objections we have raised. Any film that violates the guidelines are given cuts. It’s normal,” Srivastav told Media.
The film has been granted a ‘UA’ certificate with these cuts, reports said. The board was slammed online for its cuts on the film.
The Nitya Mehradirected film also stars Sidharth Malhotra and is scheduled to release on September 9.
The romanticcomedy is scheduled to clash with Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Freaky Ali on September 9.
Censor board has faced a lot of controversy in recent past for suggesting arbitrary cuts to movies. Films like Udta Punjab, Aligarh, Jai Gangaajal, Angry Indian Godesses have had a run in with the board and its chief Pahlaj Nihalani.
