Director Shashanka  Ghosh and producers Ekta and Rhea  Kapoor’s Veere Di Wedding is being pitched as  the  chick flick of the year. But on Tuesday it was the two female producers Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor’s respective fathers, Anil Kapoor and  Jeetendra,  who attended censor certification screening of Veere Di Wedding the  chick flick featuring the newly-married Sonam Kapoor , Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhaskara and Shikha Talsania.

All the cusswords abuses, profanities and gaalis that had shocked  the prudes in  the film’s trailer have been allowed  to stay. That’s right. Audiences  will have the singular pleasure of hearing  Sonam use  the  forbidden Hindi ‘ch’ word and Kareena repeatedly use the ‘f’ word in English. There are also scenes  showing the  girls discussing sexual pleasure and  a particularly  jolting sequence showing one  of  the protagonists with a vibrator.

Apparently  several  members of  the  CBFC  were “dead against” letting the  four heroines speak like what one  CBFC member described as “drunk fisherwomen.” However the two proud protective star-papas thought  otherwise.

Says a source in the know, “Both Jeetendra and Anil Kapoor argued heatedly in favour of the  colourful language spoken in Veere Di Wedding. They are convinced that today’s youngsters speak that foul lurid leery language. Some panel members objected. But finally the board members agreed  to let  the  language remain intact  and gave  the  film an ‘A’ certificate.”
