CBFC Does It Again, Chops Off A Bra Shot And Savita Bhabhi Reference From Baar Baar Dekho

Just when we thought that the whole Udta Punjab fiasco must have taught censor board a much-needed lesson, they chose to shock us with yet another news. According to a Bollywoodhungama report, Nitya Mehra and Karan Johar’s Baar Baar Dekho which is heading close to its release has faced Censor board’s wrath!

Two of the scenes from the film have been chopped off. A source close to the development further added:

“The Censor Board objected to the shot of a bra. But the producers argued that there was a shot of a bra in Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol starrer Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, and no one objected. But the CBFC would not relent. The team had to cut the lingerie out.”

According to a Bollywood Hungama report, a source close to the film is angry. The source revealed,

“Are we living in the Victorian era when women’s innerwear was never spoken of in public? Years ago in 1995 there was a bra shot featuring Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan. And Baar Baar Dekho is directed by a woman. So the chances of lingerie being used to titillate the audience are nil. The CBFC asked the producers of Baar Baar Dekho to delete a reference to Savita Bhabhi. The name is used in a jokey light-hearted manner in the film. If a porn reference is objectionable then how come Sunny Leone’s name was used in A Flying Jatt?”

Raising a valid point, the source further raised another important point:

Freaky Ali, which opens along with Baar Baar Dekho, features Nawazuddin Siddiqui as a salesperson for men’s lingerie. Are we to presume that it’s okay to show men’s underwear? But not okay to show women’s lingerie?”
 

The film revolves around the plot of time-travel stars Sidharth and Katrina in lead roles and the film is all set to hit the silver screens on 9th September.
