We had recently reported that Sheetalbhabhi.com, a film inspired by the popular online pornographic comic strip savitabhabhi.com, had run into trouble with the Censor Board. Well the film is finally ready to release, but with a lot of cuts.
The major bone of contention
was a sex scene between actors Jatin Garewall and Monalisa. Says producer Mahendra Dhariwal, “It was an intimate love making scene. We tried to convince the board, but they had their way and cut it to about 40 seconds from the original one-and-a-half-minute long scene.”
Apparently, even Garewall had a few reservations. “He is newly married and was worried that it may affect his life. He didn’t want his wife to watch him making love to another woman for so long,” says Dhariwal.
The Board also had an issue with a poster in the film, which was inspired by Savita Bhabi’s artwork. They didn’t want the filmmakers to use the poster in the promotions. “We convinced them about its importance. Anyway, since it’s releasing this Friday, we hardly have time for promotions. But if it is good, it’ll do well at the box office,” says Dhariwal.
In the film, Monalisa, Garewall’s wife, disappears after her wedding night. He then marries Heena Rehman, the actor last seen in I Proud To Be An Indian (2004).
As the story unfolds, Heena’s growing interest in fleecing Jatin’s friends for money leads to a cycle of extramarital affairs.
