I am a virgin tell Deepika Padukone to Arjun Kapoor
The Central Board of Film Certification’s latest ‘irrational diktat’ has been issued to Homi Adajania. He has been asked to chop off a ‘vulgar’ line from his upcoming film Finding Fanny where Deepika tells Arjun, “I am a virgin.” The director argued that the word (virgin) has been passed in many films like Dil Se (1998) where Preity Zinta asks Shah Rukh Khan whether he is a virgin. In 2 States (2014) too after a steamy scene Alia asks Arjun if this is his “first time”.
But, Homi was told that if he wanted a UA certificate he will have to chop off the dialogue. Reacting to the cut Nandini Sardesai senior Board member told, “We have a huge backlog of films which need to be watched and certified but those at the screenings are not always the ones who are supposed to do that job.”
