Mumbai: The censor board is back in news for suggesting three cuts in the upcoming Katrina Kaif starrer “Baar Baar Dekho”.
According to reports, the board has objected to a shot of brassiere and a scene with reference to the adult comic series “Savita Bhabhi”. When contacted, Anurag Srivastav, CEO, Central Board of Film Certification, confirmed that board has suggested cuts but said it was part of the normal certification process.
“We have suggested three-four 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 PTI.
The Nitya Mehra-directed film also stars Sidharth Malhotra and is scheduled to release on September 9. The romantic-comedy 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.
