Despite an ‘A’ certificate, the panel suggests major cuts in the film

Mahesh Nair, director of Celina Jaitly-Farooque Shaikh starrer Accident On Hill Road is a livid man. The Censor Board has objected to a one minute-50 second scene in his movie. The scene showing Celina and Abhimanyu Singh in bed making love has raised the eyebrows of the authorities making them chop some portions.

The film has been given an ‘A’ certificate, but Nair says the board isn’t playing fair. “In the recent past, there have been movies depicting violence and sex but that has gone unnoticed.”

Claiming that his love making scene is aesthetically shot he adds, “In fact, the portion they have raised objections to, doesn’t even have a liplock. Despite that they have problems with it.”

Describing the three issues the board has raised, Nair says, “Their first problem was that they objected to the lady removing her undergarments in the scene. However, Celina wears stockings that Abhimanyu removes before their lovemaking. I don’t think stockings are undergarments, and the board should understand that.

Secondly, they had an issue with too much caressing happening between the actors. They told me instead of touching each other why can’t they express their love by looking at each other, through their eyes! Lastly, they thought that one minute and 50 seconds was too long a time for the actors to establish a relation between the two. All these points are totally baseless and unwarranted.”

Furious that he has to go with the cut, Nair feels the board only picks on small budget films. “I don’t want to take names, but there have been so many films this year with enough liplocks and fight scenes depicting brutality which have made it without cuts, why give a different treatment to me?”

Hrithik Roshan and Monikangana Dutta have passionate kissing and lovemaking scenes in Guzaarish

Hrithik Roshan

The forthcoming Kites is not the only film in which we will see Hrithik Roshan in passionate scenes. After filming sizzling scenes with Barbara Mori in Kites, Hrithik is now ready to make love to super hot model Monikangana Dutta, who plays his former love interest, in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish. Evidently Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has no lip lock scene with Hrithik in the film.

A source says, “Although Aishwarya is paired opposite Hrithik, he has intimate scenes with Monikangana. As she plays Hrithik’s former love interest, Bhansali wanted their sizzling chemistry to be quite apparent. Monikangana has a small but very important role and it was imperative that she has intimate lovemaking scenes with Hrithik. Being a debutante actress, the model is nervous about her passionate scenes with the actor.”

Monikangana Dutta

“They have not shot for the scene as yet but Bhansali has already briefed the two. Initially, there was also a lip lock scene between Aishwarya and Hrithik but the director later dropped the idea as it wasn’t really necessary. The lovemaking scene between Hrithik and Monikangana is far more crucial as Bhansali wants to highlight their love for each other in his film.Apparently, Hrithik’s wife Sussanne is aware about the passionate scenes and has spoken to Monikangana so that she is less nervous while shooting for them,” adds the source.

The intimate scenes will be shot during the film’s next schedule in January in Goa.

Mumbai:After her kiss with Madhavan in Guru, Vidya Balan seems to have developed cold feet to the idea of puckering up to another co-star. The actress has put her foot down and said no to a liplock with Arshad Warsi in Ishqiya.

Gira do!

A source from the unit reveals, “Ishqiya was being shot on Wednesday at the Borivili National Park. Several scenes were to be canned, including one smooch scene between Vidya and Arshad. The actress threw a spanner in the works and completely refused to a liplock with Arshad. Director Abhishek Chaubey was taken aback as he had informed Vidya about the kissing scene beforehand.”

The source continues, “Balan has intimate scenes with Arshad in the film but her refusal to smooch shocked everyone. Producer Vishal Bhardwaj was called to the sets. He couldn’t make it as he was busy editing his other project, Kaminey. She was persistent. The director was forced to drop it altogether.”

Banking on Vishal

It is learnt that Vishal will be meeting Vidya to discuss her reservations for not enacting the scene. The source maintains, “Abhishek is sure that once she speaks to Vishal, she will do the scene. She has been co-operative throughout the shoot. It’s surprising that she did steamy scenes but refused to smooch Arshad.”

Co-producer Mansi Maroo maintains, “I was present on the sets and nothing like this happened. Vidya is informed about any and all scenes in advance.”

Vidya remained unavailable for comment.
