Kareena Kapoor's much-hyped movie Heroine, which is scheduled to release in theatres on September 21, has completed the formalities of the Censor Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) on Friday. The Madhur Bhandarkar directed film has got ‘A' certificate from the CBFC, which has suggested the makers to include a statutory-warning ticker for every scene showing Bebo smoking.
A source from the CBFC says that Kareena Kapoor can be seen smoking for approximately 30 percent of the film Heroine. "We've instructed the makers of Heroine to put statutory warnings wherever the heroine is shown smoking. We're following the rule," Bollywood Hungama quotes the source as saying.
The source further says that a box of the same brand of cigarette has been shown in ten different scenes in movie Heroine. Besides including statutory warning, the Censor Board has also asked the producers to blur the brand name of cigarette. The source adds, "This amounted to endorsing a cigarette brand. We've asked the brand name to be blurred out in all the ten places where it is shown."
Heroine is all about the delightful, bold, shocking, scandalous life of an actress and Kareena Kapoor shares several steamy scene with Arjun Rampal and Randeep Hooda in the film. Interestingly, the much-talked about love making scenes in the flick have been left intact. But the makers of the movie seem to be very much worried about carrying a statutory warning with every smoking scene.
