TV personality supports ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ against CBFC, posts braless photo
The Central Board of Film Certification is under fire once again after it ordered the makers of upcoming movie ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ to chop off a shot of a bra from the movie. The CBFC asked the makers of this Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra starrer to remove “offensive shot of a woman’s brasserie”.
With this CBFC once again started debates about freedom of speech, moral policing and ended up being labelled ‘sanskaari’ by few on social media. Amidst the entire furore, former Bigg Boss contestant Priya Malik posted a picture of her sans the bra to object CBFC’s decision.
With this Priya also joined the ‘Free The Nipple’ campaign, which has gained a lot of momentum on social media a few months ago.
Here is what she posted:
Priya took to her Twitter account to announce that she would be appearing on a new show that too braless just to ‘please’ the CBFC.
Apart from the bra scene, CBFC has also asked the makers to delete a reference to ‘Savita Bhabhi’, a pornographic cartoon character.
Upset over CBFC’s decision, a member of the movie’s team reportedly told a leading daily,
"The CBFC asked the producers of Baar Baar Dekho to delete a reference to Savita Bhabhi. The name is used in a jokey light-hearted manner in the film. If a porn reference is objectionable then how come Sunny Leone's name was used A Flying Jatt?”
The movie, reports suggest, has been passed with a UA certificate after the suggested cuts.
