    bollywood latest movies

    Sooraj Barjatya & Salman Khan are well known for making family safe/clean movies in Bollywood. But, This is really shocking that Censor Board have suggested Barjatya, to effect three cuts in his upcoming Salman Khan & Sonam Kapoor starrer film Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.

    According to sources, the board took objection on use of word rakhail (mistress) & another two scenes that have been censored includes a Ram-Leela sequence which had a couple of old, Hindi melodies playing in the background. "The scene plays out with the film's title track and was interspersed with two old songs in some portions. The Censor Board felt it was not suitable to accompany the Ram-Leela visuals. The other scene shows a person being hanged, but the examining committee wanted it to be a long shot. The makers have complied with all the suggestions," adds a source close to the project.

    In reaction of same, some of well known industry persons commented -

    Mukesh Bhatt
    It is ridiculous and shows the regressive thought process of the Censor Board members. How can one even stop someone from using a word like rakhail (mistress) in a film? It is not acceptable.

    Shyam Benegal, filmmaker
    Rakhail is used in daily language. Some people have their subjective mindset and they implement such rules. I don't know the context in which the word has been used, but one cannot remove the word if it fits a particular situation. However, I don't think there is any rule restricting a filmmaker from using the word.

    Subhash Kapoor, director
    It is unacceptable. The Censor Board should keep pace with changing time. There have been instances when other filmmakers had had issues with their decision. I think the film fraternity should try and have a dialogue with the Board to check the growing number of issues.

    Milan Luthria, filmmaker
    Throwing stones at each other won't help. We must sit down and sort this out for once and for all. There should be simple, straightforward set of acceptable rules for us to follow. We can find a middle path; we are not irresponsible people.

    Neeraj Ghyawan, director
    Masaan, with an adult rating, was asked to remove words like saala and saali. There's nothing more to say about it.
