Censor Board Is No More 'Sanskaari'? Kissing Scenes Get Green Signal!

    The Censor Board had been a subject of mockery on social media as quite a lot of people trolled them as 'sanskaari' for chopping off kissing scenes in movies and censoring basic cuss words which add value to the film's plot. Disgust against the CBFC reached its peak when they interfered with Shahid Kapoor's Udta Punjab and the Board came under heavy criticism from the Supreme Court and people alike.

    Since then, the CBFC is seen to soften their stand against censoring. Films with heavy kissing scenes such as Befikre was given a pass and Shraddha Kapoor's OK Jaanu has been passed with just four verbal cuts as well.

    Film-maker Madhur Bhandarkar revealed that he feels the Censor Board has become liberal in terms of censoring and he welcomes the move, "I feel that CBFC is more forthcoming now and we must appreciate it. The content of films has been kept intact. It is a welcome move for everybody that CBFC has become so liberal."

    However, industry insiders feel the CBFC is biased and allow only the biggies to have a free run. Trade analyst Komal Nahta revealed, "For every Befikre or OK Jaanu, there seem to be two or three films where they suddenly become strict. There is no consistency and it's a very subjective thing."

    Also Trade Analyst Amul Mohan was quoted as saying, "When a big film is involved, the hypocritical side of CBFC comes out. If it's a small film, they create a scene. They always go easy on big films."

    When asked CBFC Chief Pahlaj Nahalani regarding the kissing scenes being allowed in Befikre, he said, "As a film-maker, I know what can be cut without hampering the flow of the narrative. In Befikre there is no way we could cut the kisses without interrupting the flow of the story."
