The CBFC it at it again: it has come up with objections about the love-making sequence between Brett Lee and Tannishtha Chatterjee in the former cricketer’s debut film, ‘UnIndian’. According to reports, the board has taken umbrage at the length of the bareback lovemaking scenes and has asked the makers to trim it down from a minute to only a few seconds.
Even as the controversy swirls around the song sequence, Brett Lee prefers not to go ballistic on this issue. In other words, he would rather walk on eggshells than ruffle feathers. “I don’t feel there is anything vulgar about the song sequence. It’s been very tastefully done. The song is about two human beings becoming one,” Bret Lee was quoted as saying.
At the same time, Bret Lee says he has no issue with CBFC taking a call on the song. “I am no one to decide which is right or wrong. I am an Australian while the movie has an Indian heroine and directed by an Indian,” says the actor.
Tannishtha, the heroine of the movie, is in favour of a rating system, and feels that movies need to be rated according to their content and not censored.
