Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) has always been in the news for suggesting unnecessary cuts in the film. Now the censor board has hit the headlines again for using their scissor on Ajay Devgn, Rakul Preet’s upcoming rom-com De De Pyaar De. The censor board has asked the makers of the film to make 3 changes including the replacement of an alcohol bottle from Rakul Preet’s hands with a bouquet of flowers.
Speaking about the changes, an industry source told Bollywood Hungama, “Let’s wait for the film to release. We need to know the context of the scene before jumping to conclusions. Also, the part where the flower has been put instead of alcohol might not be a part of the said song – it might be a different sequence altogether. Even then, it’s very strange that such an order was passed by the CBFC. Heroines have been shown drinking since 55-60 years in our films or even more than that. Then it was taboo and now it’s fully acceptable. And the visuals of ‘Vaddi Sharaban’ indicate that the makers have shot in a classy manner. It doesn’t look derogatory in any way. Then why did they ask for such a modification beats me!”
The CBFC have also suggested that the makers cut the dialogues “performance better hoti hai” and “Manju ji ke aalu o ho ho… wahi ache hai” considering that they have a double meaning. De De Pyaar De starring Ajay Devgn, Rakulpreet and Tabu is slated to release on May 16, 2019.
