|Gearing up for the release of his ambitious film Love Sex Aur Dhokha this Friday, maverick director Dibakar Banerjee is satisfied with the ‘Adults’ certificate given to the flick by Censor Board. The movie will release with a few cuts and changes.
Though Dibakar is okay with a few cuts, he is disappointed with certain changes. And one such change is the blurring of the sex scene. Dibakar has insisted again and again that LSD is not about “sex, sex and sex”, as perceived by many. Despite that he was asked by the censor board on Monday to tone down the controversial sex scene which is now even on the net.
Talking to a news agency, he says, “The censor preview recommendation suggests that we blur the sex scene. We were told this scene was too graphic and needed tempering. There’s no way the censors could allow the love-making scene…”
And Dibakar is also not-so-pleased with the cut in the scene which has a reference of caste in the love story between a low-caste boy and a high-caste girl. “This completely changes the perspective of my story as now the caste-challenged love story is turned into a poor-boy-rich-girl romance. This is not what I intended,” says the director.
Now, what we can’t understand is that though the movie is just for adults, why is the mention of ‘caste’ objectionable. But Dibakar says, “No complaints”. He is aware that it’s all because of the controversial content of the film.
And we can’t say much until we watch the movie.
