The censor board has passed all the nude scenes between Aruna Shields and Prashant Narayanan in the upcoming flick Mr Singh Mrs Mehta with an ‘A’ certificate. But director Parvesh Bharadwaj’s wife, Shruti Nagar, is miffed. Nagar who works with Rajshri Productions, feels her husband has overdosed on the sex and nudity.
Narayanan admitted to this. “There is a sequence of Aruna undressing, her clothes come off one by one. Shruti thought I should tone it down,” he informs, saying her reaction did make him rethink on his approach to the subject.
He adds that his wife didn’t approve of a script that focused primarily on nudity and agrees that he may have gone over the top. He hopes the abundance of bare flesh is not misconstrued as titillation.
He applauds the Censor Board for its maturity in passing the film. “We did have more than one revising committee screening and lots of anxious moments. But no scene has been snipped and I’m relieved," he recalls.
