Deepika's bra strap pulling scene deleted from 'Finding Fanny'
Homi Adjania has something to worry about now! After the recent controversy about corruption in Censor Board created such uproar, the Censor Board is becoming too stringent with Bollywood films. One such film to face censor trouble issues is the Arjun Kapoor-Deepika Padukone starrer 'Finding Fanny’.
The Censor Board has cracked its whip on the upcoming Arjun Kapoor- Deepika Padukone starrer. We hear that the Board had an objection to the word ‘virgin’ being used in the film by DP. They even called for a deletion of that particular scene wherein Deepika reveals to Arjun that she is a virgin.
A source close to the ‘Finding Fanny’ team says, “Apart from the scene where Deepika is talking about her virginity, there’s one more scene where Deepika is shown pulling off her bra strap. This too has been deleted by the examining committee of the Censor Board.”
Not just that, the Censor Board has also asked Homi to tone down the scene where Dimple Kapadia's skirt gets torn. Pankaj Kapur is gazing at Dimple Kapadia’s butt. However, the makers have convinced the committee to use the scene as a flash. The film which will be released in both Hindi and English is facing trouble in getting a U/A certification.
The premiere of the movie was scheduled for August 25, but it was postponed to September 1, because of the crisis at the Censor board after the arrest of CBFC CEO. Finally, the English version of Homi Adajania’s caper has been passed for viewing with a U/A certificate and two cuts. The Hindi version is yet to undergo the censoring process.
The film is about five Goans who set off on a road trip in search of an old postman's childhood love, Stefanie "Fanny" Fernandes, though nobody knows whether she's alive or dead or just a figment of someone's imagination. However, the friends get lost, and the journey - originally intended to take 20 minutes - instead takes one and a half days. They experience various hilarious and moving events that change their lives forever.
The trailers of the movie came out weeks back and have seemed to win the hearts of many. Such last minute controversies and editing may lead to loss of audiences!
However, the weird part is that the use of the word “virgin” has been approved by the Censor Board earlier in movies as old as the Shahrukh-Manisha starrer ‘Dil se’. So why the drama now??!
