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?”

BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL: (From top) Stills from Luck By Chance, Kaminey, Love Aaj Kal

Heroines today are much more comfortable with their sexuality than ever before

DEEPALI DHINGRA Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; September 29, 2009)


Did you cringe with discomfort when a seemingly innocent child woman Isha Sherwani seduced Farhan Akhtar into bed in Luck By Chance? Or, more recently, when a salwar kameez-clad Priyanka Chopra managed to convince a reluctant Shahid Kapoor to have sex with her in Kaminey, by telling him that she knows ‘homescience’ and that it’s ‘safe to do it’? More likely than not, you smiled at their boldness and prepared for more to come. Seduction was a game played by vamps in Bollywood in the 70s and 80s. Much later, lead actresses like Bipasha Basu and Priyanka Chopra were sexually charged in Jism and Aitraaz respectively. But even then, they were the ‘bad girls’. Well, times have changed — even the ‘good’ girls are taking a turn for the ‘bad’ and the audiences are lapping it up!


Watch newcomer Mahie Gill throwing herself in full abandon at Abhay Deol in a mustard field in Dev. D and you’ll know what we’re talking about. Trade analyst Komal Nahta says he isn’t surprised at this change. “Films, after all, are a reflection of today. Girls are proposing to guys, they are using seduction as a tool even in real life. The major composition of the audience comprises youth, so they have to show what the young generation identifies with,” he says. So Kareena Kapoor playfully hands Akshay Kumar her
bra in Tashan and Konkona SenSharma suggests a quick bout of love-making to Rahul Bose in Dil Kabaddi before they turn in for the night and Deepika Padukone has no qualms with Saif Ali Khan kissing her full on the mouth in the car in Love Aaj Kal. Agrees Mahie, “Reel life follows real life. Women today are more vocal about their sexual desires than what they were about a decade back. The audience today wants to see characters they can identify with. That’s why the boldness depicted by the newer lot of actresses has been accepted.”

According to film director Onir, a growing section of audiences in urban centres are accepting this change. “Independent working women watch these films with their male friends and colleagues who treat them as equals and therefore, accept their portrayal on screen as well,” he says. Also, the younger generation of filmmakers who have grown up seeing women as friends and colleagues, are showing female characters as they are, says Onir.

Priyanka Chopra played coy when she was asked to kiss Shahid Kapoor in Kaminey
By Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; August 01, 2009)

Kaminey

While Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor may have had sizzling chemistry off screen a while ago, she shied away from kissing him on screen for Kaminey. Apparently, Priyanka is not a fan of PDA (Public Display of Affection), on and off screen. She refused to lock lips with Shahid in a scene that leads to love making, which eventually leads to her getting knocked up. Now if you won’t kiss, it’s kind of hard to reach the final result, right? But it still took Vishal Bharadwaj two months to convince her to do the scene.

The intimate scene was first shot in Lonavala, but Vishal felt that the result wasn’t very convincing. So, he suggested that they kiss — an idea that did not appeal to Priyanka.

It can’t be that she was repulsed by her co-star, so why did she protest? Our source revealed, “Priyanka said that she was not told about the scene in advance. She categorically told Vishal that she was uncomfortable doing the kissing scene. Vishal did not press the issue and shot the scene without the kiss.”

Vishal was not satisfied, so after a few days, he called the couple to check out the scene. But Shahid was not free to reshoot because he was busy with Ken Ghosh’s Yahoo by then.

“Later, when Priyanka and Shahid saw the scene together with Vishal, Priyanka realised that something was amiss. She understood Vishal’s perspective and agreed to kiss Shahid,” our source added.

Wasn’t she in love with Shahid while shooting for the film? “We don’t know about that,” our source said.

The upshot was that the scene now has them lip-locked, but this time it was shot in Mumbai. Vishal needed five retakes since he wanted to shoot it from different angles. The director refused to comment, but confirmed the story.
