The word ‘sex’ lands ‘Ek Main Aur Ek Tu’ in trouble!
Despite being the 21st century, the word ‘sex’ is still considered a dirty word by the Central Board of Film Certification.
The trailer of Karan Johar and UTV Motion Pictures produced venture, Ek Main Aur Ek Tu starring Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor, was refused an U certificate and the reason was because it had the word ‘sex’ in one of the sentences and hence. it cannot be aired on national television.
According to a source, “The film has a scene where a person asks Kareena and Imran if they’ve had sex. To this, Kareena replies ‘Yes’ and Imran says ‘No’. The objection was ridiculous. Trailers of many other recent films with objectionable dialogues and scenes have been given the nod.”
Adds the source, “KJo and Shakun have however, taken it in their stride. They are now reworking on the new version. If this same decision was passed earlier, Karan and Shakun might have decided to ‘beep’ out the word. However, since beeps are not allowed any longer, they will have to rework a lot of things to get the flow right.”
“They want the trailer to get an U certificate and not an A. They want it to get attached to as many films as possible,” added the source.
Karan Johar confirmed the news, “For now, I am attaching the current trailer of Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu to The Dirty Picture, which has been given an A certificate.
I wouldn’t like to say much on this. Frankly, it wouldn’t be correct for me to say for or against the censor board’s decision taken on the trailer of Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu. As a law-abiding filmmaker, I would rather do what I have been told (pauses). I am sure that they would be cooperative when we submit the new version.”...being a human...
