Sunny Leone’s Mastizaade barred from release over ‘too bold scenes’
The Indian censor board is reportedly unhappy with the subject of Bollywood’s one of the most unabashed sex comedies of the year. The flick was set to be released in May.
The board refused to certify the movie for having ‘too much sexual content’. It was forwarded to the board’s Revising Committee, where too the same objection was raised as the committee found it overly bold for viewing.
Following this, the makers of Mastizaade consulted the Indian Film Certification Appellate Tribunal, but the decision is pending, awaiting a reply from the tribunal.
Mastizaade, directed by Milap Zaveri, stars Sunny Leone, Tusshar Kapoor and Vir Das in lead roles.
It is mandatory to note here that the censor board had objected over two other movies of Sunny Leone namely ‘Aik Paheli Leela’ and ‘Kuch Kuch Locha Hai’ for containing some excessively bold scenes.
The movies, however, were released after removal of board’s objections.
