3 Cuts and a UA! CBFC asks Naam Shabana producer to get rid of domestic violence scenes – Here's the full censor report of the Taapsee Pannu starrer
Naam Shabana, which features Taapsee Pannu and Manoj Bajpai in espionage mode, has been cleared by the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) with three cuts for a UA rating. In other words, kids can watch NS, if accompanied by their guardian.
However, no one gets to see a scene of domestic violence in the film. “Hitting a woman is not permissible under any circumstance. Today, if we had to certify films about domestic violence like Deepa Mehta’s Heaven On Earth or Jagmohan Mundra’s Provoked, it would be impossible,” says a source from the CBFC.
The CBFC has also ordered two rather strange cuts. “A shot showing a bottle of liquor had to go. And a Santa-Banta joke was asked to be deleted. Ridiculing any community, no matter how sporting the humour, it is not allowed,” says the CBFC source.
