Actress-activist-columnist Pooja Bedi sees the Talibanization of sexual mores in Indian films as a sign of censorial hypocrisy.
Said Pooja: "Cinema is always blamed for the rising crime in our society. So perhaps the censors are afraid that Hugh's bare butt will start a trend of men being raped...
"On a more serious note, are they insinuating that the Indian multiplex audiences, the kind of viewership that 'X Men' gets, would be disturbed or unable to handle what the rest of the world would watch calmly as a normal part of the movie-viewing experience?
"This doesn't speak very highly of their perception of Indian sensitivities," she said.
