A fortnight ago, Savita Bhabhi was in trouble again, when Love In Bollywood - les Adventures de Savita Bhabhi, released. It’s a comic book based on her sexcapades by a French publisher. The 96-page comic book is authored by Deshmukh, the UK-based person responsible for the website, and designed by graphic designers Dexstar and Madman. Though it is available at online retailer
website for € 13.25 (Rs 875), the book is not available here.
A fortnight before that, India’s first porn toon site created news, when it returned on a new URL, www.kirtu.com , after it was banned by the government in June last year.
Now, from this month onwards, the site has become a paid one. A 30-plus Savita Bhabhi loyalist says, “It doesn’t matter to me if it becomes a paid site. I won’t pay. I can download new episodes of Savita Bhabhi on porn forums online. I used to do that when there was a ban on the site in India. It’s a sort of forum for porn lovers. People send downloads to these sites. So the same will happen with Savita Bhabhi. Some rich guys will subscribe to the site and share downloads with us on the forum. Eventually, I’ll get it. So what if I get it late?”
Another 35-year-old says, “I’m sad that it’s become a paid site. I don’t care about the money part but my wife will get to know that I’m subscribing to the site, when she checks my bills. I can’t take panga with my wife for Savita Bhabhi. So I go through the old issues all over again. But I’m desperately hoping that it will become a free site once again.”
So, all new episodes of Savita Bhabhi will be available only to members. The members will have exclusive access to the new Savita Bhabhi episodes and new series like Kinara Lane and Saath Kahaniya. Besides, more such series have been planned for the future. In a bid to lure Indian subscribers, the series will be available in other Indian languages, besides English.
A 3D version of Savita Bhabhi, Saath Kahaniya and Kinara Lane series is also coming soon. The new animated series is in the process of development. There’ll also be exclusive access to the Premium ‘Members Only’ fan club where they’ll get special items and behind-the-scenes artwork, not seen before.
But the Savita Bhabhi team has made special allowances for her diehard fans. Those who sign up this month will become a Kirtu.com exclusive member for only 9.95 $ a month. This offer is available only for the first 100 members. After that, new members will have to shell out 30 $ per month.
‘I’m against it’
Rajesh Chharia, President ISPAI (Internet Service Providers Association of India), says, “I refuse to comment on this in the capacity of the president of the association. The matter is now subjudice. But otherwise, I’d like to say that I’m against the site, paid or free.”
“It shouldn’t exist. I’m against it. It’s harmful to our younger generation. The middle class is so worried about their children surfing porn sites that they don’t allow them to go online at all. This is bad for the nation.”
