It looks like Mr Singh Mrs Mehta produced by Manu Kumaran
will run into trouble with the Censor Board. The reason is that the
film requires the female lead Aruna Shields to pose nude in one of
the sequences like Kate Winslet did in Titanic.
Director Pravesh Bhardwaj approached as many as 60 actresses for
the female lead role in Mr Singh Mrs Mehta but they all turned him
down for one reason – 'nude scene.' The female character in the
film is a muse for a nude painting. So, she has to pose nude in
front a man who is not her husband yet she gives a damn care to
what the society would react.
The director received lots of abuses and embarrassment even from
upcoming actresses for this script. However, Aruna, who was last
seen with Vivek Oberoi in Prince, came to his rescue. She breathe
new life to the film by giving the green signal.
