Baar Baar Dekho starring Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra has been granted a ‘UA’ certification by the Censor Board Of Film Certification (CBFC).
This, however, came with two cuts. And to the surprise of many, the two edits suggested by the CBFC, came across as just ‘silly’. Firstly, the censor board has asked the makers to remove a ‘bra’ visual and in another instance, the reference of ‘Savita Bhabhi’ needed to be cropped too.
Savita Bhabhi is an Indian pornographic cartoon character, a housewife
Twitter was flooded with comments ridiculing the censor’s decision’
The hashtags including #SanskariCBFC #baarbaardekho kept the Twitter abuzz for hours. Some shared angry tweets, while others made fun saying, “#BaarBaarDekho sounds like Bra bra dekho to CBFC.”
Another interesting troll read, “#CBFC has got #savitabhabi to trend! #BaarBaarDekho.”
This is not the first time that CBFC and particularly its Chairperson Pahlaj Nihalani have been trolled on the Twitter.
A few weeks ago, CBFC wanted to remove all the cuss words and references to ‘Punjab’ from the film Udta Punjab. The entire film industry came out in unison to support the movie. Udta Punjab was finally cleared by the CBFC with just one cut. It seems the whole controversy is just not enough to stop CBFC from making silly interferences. – CINEWS
