Deepika Breaks Her Silence on Censor Board for Finding Fanny

Reportedly, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has objected to the use of the word ‘virgin’ in one of the dialogues of latest movie Finding Fanny.


Actress Deepika Padukone, who plays lead in Finding Fanny, said its 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,” she said.

The actress feels while judging a movie, it is important to see everything in the context of a particular scene or a film.

She said; “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,” the 28-year-old said.

Finding Fanny is an English language film. it is scheduled to be released on September 12. The film also features Dimple Kapadia, Naseeruddin Shah, Arjun Kapoor and Pankaj Kapur.

The comedy film is directed by Homi Adajania.

Arjun Kapoor, who plays male lead opposite Deepika in Finding Fanny, said in a statement: “Censorship is for the audience and if they (censor board) realize that the audience does not find anything wrong with something, I hope they can change their minds so that we can make films for the audience.”

“We are making films for the audience and it’s not like we enjoy saying certain things. In her character’s context, it is very important whatever she says. We should get a consistent platform before we face the censors,” said the son of producer Boney Kapoor.
