Katrina Kaif & Sidharth Malhotra starer Baar Baar Dekho is in the news again. And this time for some “offensive” scenes from the movie. The Censor ordered a scene showing a bra and reference to Savita Bhabhi edited out. This isn’t the first time that CBFC has got into moral policing. From last few months, many of the movies come under their scissors.
A source from the film was quoted as saying, “We don’t live in times where women’s innerwear is never spoken of in public. In fact, even as early as 1995, there was a scene featuring Kajol in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. Moreover, the film is directed by a woman (Nitya Mehra). To assume she’d use the lingerie scene for titillation is absurd. We were asked to delete the reference. The name is used in a light-hearted manner in the film. If a porn reference is objectionable, how was Sunny Leone’s name used in A Flying Jatt?”
