Priya Malik of ‘Bigg Boss 9’ goes braless to protest ‘bra cut’ in ‘Baar Baar Dekho’
Priya, who is quite vocal about her opinions, took to her Instagram page and posted a picture of her without bra and wrote, “Because wearing a visible #bra would be indecent. #FreeTheNipple.”
In the photo, Priya is seen wearing a white dress, but chose to do away with the bra which is seen in contrasting colour, hanging on the wall behind her. She has stood up in support of the Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif starrer film and sent home her message to the censor board.
Priya, who hails from Dehradun is a teacher by profession and was a finalist in reality show ‘Big Brother Australia’ in 2014, before entering ‘Bigg Boss 9’ as a wild card entrant.
The Central Board of Film Certification granted debutante director Nitya Mehra’s ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ a ‘UA’ certificate, but not before it complied with the board’s demands. The CBFC had asked the makers to delete a bra shot which it found ‘offensive’. The board also objected to a reference of Savita Bhabi, a character from adult comic book series.
The censor board and its chief Pahlaj Nihalani has faced a lot of flak in the recent past for suggesting arbitrary cuts to movies like ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘Aligarh’, ‘Jai Gangaajal’, ‘Angry Indian Godesses’ and others.
'Baar Baar Dekho' is slated to hit screens on September 9.
