The Censor Board wanted a scene showing a bra and a mention of Savita Bhabhi deleted
Baar Baar Dekho got a new kind of publicity, something it would have never expected, thanks to our desi sanskaari Censor Board.
The Pahlaj Nihalani-led examining committee had asked the makers of Baar Baar Dekho to deleted two scenes from the film, that you would have thought harmless.
There was a scene where a bra is shown which the Censor Board found very offensive for some reason. Another scene was the mention of Savita Bhabhi in a dialogue, which got the CBFC irked. Savita Bhabhi is a hugely popular porn character, and our moral committee of movies doesn't want the ignorant among us to know who this special lady is.
So again Censor Board got to everyone's bad side, thanks to their determined mission to make our country as pure as Pahlaj Nihalani's love for A Flying Jatt.
Ex-Bigg Boss contestant, Priya Malik had the fitting reply to Censor Board's stance on not wanting the world to see a woman's lingerie lying around (Censor Board had previously asked the makers of Kangana Ranaut's Queen to blur a scene in the film where a bra is shown). She posted a pic on Instagram which was her protest against their decision with a tag like this "Because wearing a visible #bra would be indecent. #FreeTheNipple.
She also spoke about why she put up the pic, "Yesterday was the day when a bra scene got banned from a film, a temple in Ujjain asked girls to not wear jeans to the temple and the Foreign Minister suggested women tourists to not wear skirts in India. Hello, 2016! Those who consider the sight of a woman’s bra offensive are the same ones who’d consider me going braless offensive too. That’s society for you. My body. My choice. Who put the boo in boobs?"
While we are in support of what Priya did, we are not sure if the Censor Board will ever get her message.
Baar Baar Dekho stars Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif, and is directed by Nitya Mehra.Th joint producers iof the film are Karan Johar, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, and will release on September 9.
