Katrina Kaif and Siddharth Malhotra's Baar Baar Dekho has finally been given a 'UA' certificate by the censor board. But having a film passed by the current board without any cuts is rather rare. So while Baar Baar Dekho looks like a 'clean' film from the trailers and songs released so far, the infamous CBFC is on a snipping spree with this too.
The film had to have two cuts.
One was an apparently a shot of a bra which was asked to be removed.
“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,” a source revealed to DNA.
The same report says CBFC demanded another cut, where there was a reference to Savita Bhabi ( a popular porn comic character).
The filmmakers have questioned how this was a problem while the mention of Sunny Leone wasn't one in A Flying Jatt.
While some recent reports said the censor board might lose their censorship scissors, it seems they're making the most of things until it's implemented.
Baar Baar Dekho is set to release on 9th September. Watch the trailer:
