Looking annoyed with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) as it denied to keep the word ‘virgin’ in one of the dialogues of upcoming film ‘Finding Fanny’, Deepika Padukone has condemned the censor board saying that their guidelines are inconsistent.
“I don’t think their request is valid. I believe that there is no system to this. Every six months the rules keep changing… There is no consistency to what is being said and done,” the 28-year-old said according to IANS.
She opined that the board should keep in mind that while judging a film, they should keep in mind the context of the scene and the film. “They should see it in the context of the scene and the film, you can’t just pick put one word and say, ‘Oh, we are not allowing this word.’ Secondly, give us a reason why you are not allowing us to show certain things. But they are the final authority and we will accept what they say,” Padukone added.
‘Finding Fanny’, which has been helmed by Homi Adajania, is an English language film which features Naseeruddin Shah, Pankaj Kapur Dimple Kapadia and Arjun Kapoor. The movie is slated to release on 12th September.
