The censor board for Indian films is throwing surprises to the audience; while some are happy with these, the others are not. The two big films Vidya Balan’s The Dirty Picture and Akshay Kumar’s Desi Boyz is nearing their release.
On one hand where Vidya Balan is representing the sex symbol, her films has been passed by the censor board without any cuts and on the other hand ‘Desi Boyz’ the comedy film of Akshay has been given ‘A’ certificate.
“The makers of Desi Boyz were expecting a U/A certificate since it’s a big-budget film and with Akshay and John in the cast they were largely targeting the family audience and youth as well. Unfortunately for them, the film has been given an Adult certification,” informs a source.
Desi Boyz has Akshay and John as male strippers. This might have affected the certification.
While the makers of The Dirty Picture were a bit nervous about the censorship, they are relaxed now. “While they were clearly expecting an adult certificate (with Vidya Balan’s liberal dose of skin-show), they were a bit apprehensive if the Censor board would ask them for any cuts”.
