Pahlaj Nihalani’s ‘sanskari’ stint as chief might be over, but that does not deter Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) from running amok its scissors.
According to a report in Deccan Chronicle, Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Simran’ has become the latest victim of censor board’s strictness as it has ordered 10 cuts in the film.
The word ‘b**ch’ has been censored from six places as it is derogatory for women. Makers have also been asked to remove the word ‘bastrad’, as well as reference to the Muslim community. The board has also directed to tone down the loud moans during sex.
“Derogating women by gesture or language will never be permissible under any guideline, be it Pahlaj or Prasoon,” the report quoted a source as saying.
All the cuts have been accepted by the makers. The film is set to hit the screens this Friday.
It is important to note that CBFC has made these cuts under guidance of new chief Prasoon Joshi who has replaced Nihalani after his unceremonious ouster from the board
