Censor Board, who might have over looked Sonam Kapoor’s middle finger in ‘Players’ trailer, are in no mood to repeat the same mistake and have given Kareena Kapoor and Imran Khan starrer ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’ an ‘A’ certificate for the use of the word ‘sex’ in the trailer.
The Censor Board has asked the filmmaker Karan Johar to remove the word ‘sex’.
“The film has a scene where a person asks Kareena and Imran if they’ve had sex. To this, Kareena replies ‘Yes’ and Imran says ‘No’. The objection was ridiculous. Trailers of many other recent films with objectionable dialogues and scenes have been given the nod,” said a source to a tabloid.
The debutant director Shakun Batra and producer Karan Johar have experienced a set back with the Censor Board’s decision and are planning on an alternative method.
“KJo and Shakun have taken it in their stride. They are now reworking on the new version. If this same decision was passed earlier, Karan and Shakun might have decided to ‘beep’ out the word. However, since beeps are not allowed any longer, they will have to rework a lot of things to get the flow right,” added the source.
Karan Johar confirmed that they were planning on reworking on the trailer but not at present.
“For now, I am attaching the current trailer of ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’ to ‘The Dirty Picture’, which has been given an A certificate," he said.
“As a law-abiding filmmaker, I would rather do what I have been told. I am sure that they would be cooperative when we submit the new version,” he added.
The film stars Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor in the lead roles. It’s scheduled to be released on February 10, 2012.
