Baar Baar Dekho is an upcoming Indian Hindi-language romantic drama film directed by Nitya Mehra which marks her debut in Hindi cinema. The film stars Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra. Censor board asked makers to remove 2 scenes from Baar Baar Dekho.
While the Censor Board or CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) has earned a notorious reputation for suggesting arbitrary cuts in films, much to the annoyance of the film fraternity, here’s case nobody would have anticipated.
The Pahlaj Nihalani-led Board demanded a shot showing a woman’s bra to be removed from the upcoming Sidharth Malhotra-Katrina Kaif-starrer time-travel drama before granting it a ‘U/A’ certificate.
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 na member of the Baar Baar Dekho team was quoted in the report.
Earlier in the year, Balaji Motion Pictures and Phantom Films Udta Punjab went through a long standing legal battle with the CBFC over reportedly 89 cuts which the certification board suggested to the makers.
