The sudden spurt-to use a perverse pun-of sex comedies in Bollywood has come under the scrutiny of the Information & Broadcasting ministry after the trailers of these comedies were brought to the I & B ministry’s attention.
Apparently an explanation has been demanded from the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) as to why such overt vulgarity is being shown in the trailers of Kya Kool Hain Hum 3 and Mastizaade.
Apparently Pahlaj Nihalani the chairperson of the CBFC has already sent his explanation to the I &B ministry.
Comments Nihalani, “We are in a Catch 22 situation. Karo toh gaali, na karo toh gali.When we were strict with the vulgarity quotient we were called prudes. Sanskari became a gaali. And to endorse obscenity was seen worthy of taali. So we certified some films with scenes and dialogues that we would otherwise have never passed as they went against our guidelines.”
However Nihalani is quick to point out that the scenes being shown in the forthcoming sex comedies are illegal. “The steep level of vulgarity in the trailers was brought to our notice. And we were shocked to see scenes and dialogues that we had censored are being used in the trailer. In fact the makers of Angry Indian Goddesses put together scenes deleted from the film and put them online. Do they know it’s a culpable crime?”
