Is the movie ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’ too bold for Indian cinema?!
Poor Shakun Batra, debutant director and KJo! After all the money, time and effort gone into the making of the ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’ trailer, they need to get back to the drawing board because of the use the three letter word describing intimacy!
The movie starring Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor, was refused a ‘U’ certificate which means it cannot be aired on national television. Most find the objection to the use of the word in the movie absurd especially since Indian cinema has become so bold and liberal with their scenes and dialogues.
After much embarrassment and attempts to “beep” out the word, Shakun Batra and KJo have to rework several parts of the movie for it to make sense. This may mean overshooting the budget but it is the only way for them to guarantee a ‘U’ certificate!
KJo was very careful with his comments about the Censor Board’s decision on the trailer of ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’. He would rather play it safe and be co-operative so that they have no issues with the second version.
