Heroines can be objectified on screen, but clearly they cannot indulge in orgasmic sex. Or so feels the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) that has suggested 10 cuts in Simran, one of them being a loud moan by Kangy during an intimate scene. A cuss word, used by Kangana's character in the film, has also been asked to be scrapped by the board.
According to a report in Deccan Chronicle, the makers of the Hansal Mehta-directed film have accepted all the cuts recommended by the CBFC.
"The sound effect made the sex scene look far more provocative than it actually was," the report stated.
According to an India Today report, the word 'b***h' has been censored from six places. But the scissor didn't stop at the intimate scenes and cuss words. Scenes of violence had to be toned down, too. The sound of a scene showing a slap (you read that right) had to be subdued.
Simran, inspired by a true story, is headed for a release tomorrow.
