Ekta Kapoor’s adult comedy, Kya Kool Hain Hum 3, which stars Bigg Boss contestant Mandana Karimi, former Bigg Boss contestant Gizele Thakral, Tusshar Kapoor and Aftab Shivdasani, may just have saved itself from being sent to the dustbin, but not before paying a heavy price to survive. Reports suggest that the producers of the A-rated film had to agree to as many as 34 cuts demanded by the Central Board of Film Certification before giving it the green signal to be released on January 22.
According to a report in Mumbai tabloid Mid Day, some of the changes demanded by the Board include changing Krushna Abhishek’s character’s name to Mickey Singh from Horny Singh; deleting portions of the song ‘Oh Boy’, picturised on Karimi and Tusshar, because some of the ‘hand movements of the actors resembled the act of masturbation’; editing a 30-second orgasm scene featuring actors Giselle Thakral to eight seconds; the word ‘orgasm’ dropped from a Giselle dialogue referring to classic Hindi film Mughal-E-Azam (she calls it Mughal-E-Orgasm); a bizarre dialogue by Karimi, ‘Tum Mere Andar Ho’ changed to ‘Tum Mere Yahan Ho’, among others.
Talking about the censor cuts, Tusshar Kapoor had said earlier: “They (censor board) haven’t been soft. You all had published the news that our film has got banned. Actually our film has got passed after numerous screenings and the censor board has taken a very fair decision with our film. We’ve received the censor certificate while maintaining the film’s plot and flavour. It was a good and fair process, but definitely not soft.”
