8 hours ago

Pink the high-profile film on violence against women, has just been viewed and certified with a 'UA' certificate (which means it can be viewed by non-adults with parental guidance) and with only 4 verbal cuts, and that too because they are blatantly abusive towards women. According to sources close to the film, the Censor Board Of Film Certification (Cbfc) was deeply impressed by the film's commitment to projecting the urban Indian woman's predicament in a patriarchal society where men feel it is their birth right to violate women emotionally, verbally and physically. In an unprecedented and radical change from the norm, the Cbfc has allowed many scenes of violence against women because it was felt that the hard hitting content was not gratuitous in Pink.

The Sidharth Malhotra-Katrina Kaif starrer Baar Baar Dekho has been granted a 'UA' certificate by the Censor Board Of Film Certification (Cbfc). But only after a shot of a brassiere was removed from the film. An angry member of the Baar Baar Dekho team expostulates, "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." Apparently the censor board refused to certify the film until the "offensive" shot was removed. Another cut that the Cbfc demanded was to do with a naughty reference to 'Savita Bhabhi' the comic book porn character whose sexual exploits are devoured on the internet by millions of her fans.
