Shah Rukh Khan, who is leaving no stone unturned to promote his upcoming film ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal,’ says that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has misunderstood the word ‘intercourse.’
Earlier, CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihlani had told the makers of the film to remove the word ‘intercourse’ from one of the mini trailers of the film. However, he told the media that if the makers get one lakh votes in support of the word he would clear it, reports Mid Day.
When Khan was asked about the same topic during a song launch of the film on Monday night, he said: “The way people have voted in favour of us, I feel, same way they should come to watch our film. I will be very happy.” Khan went on to say, “I feel the CBFC misunderstood the context of that word. We respect CBFC a lot. It’s our department. They are doing their job and we are doing ours and as far as that scene is concerned, I don’t think there is anything objectionable in that.”
On Monday, Khan, Imtiaz Ali and Anushka Sharma launched their second song. “Beech Beech Meina,” which is a club song from ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal.’ Talking about his clubbing experience, Khan said: “I haven’t gone for clubbing much. When I was in Delhi, that time I never used to have that much money to go into clubs and then I came here (Mumbai) to act in movies and became a star so I haven’t had much opportunity to go into clubs here as well. Whatever club hopping I have done is all because of Imtiaz while shooting for this film.”
Talking about the song “Beech Beech Mein,” he said, “Beech Beech Mein is a club song…this song comes when Harry and Sejal start celebrating in pubs, karaoke bars and night club with very few (friends) around them. It’s the couple partying. So our team thought that if we go to club or lounge to launch the song then it will be nice.”
“This song symbolizes the fact that there are times in a relationship when you are not certain about it. It’s somewhere in the middle without any conclusion so this whole song is like that and I feel people will relate to it,” Khan added.
“Jab Harry Met Sejal” is releasing on 4th August. Stick with BizAsiaLive.com for more updates.
