Stretching close to 2 minutes, the steamy scenes between Celina Jaitley and co-star Abhimanyu Singh in the upcoming movie ‘Accident On Hill Road’ has hit a hurdle with the Censor Board of India.
The movie, which is slated to be released on December 31, has been given an ‘A’ certificate. The director of the movie Mahesh Nair has been asked to chop the 1 minute and 50 seconds long scene, which the filmmaker says is crucial to the film’s narrative.
In the scene, Abhimanyu takes Celina to bed, removes her stockings and caresses her for a good 1 minute before making love to her. Nair says the scene is important to establish the smouldering chemistry between the two characters in the film.
The Censor Board, however, has raised objections to the length of the scene.
But Mahesh Nair is crying fowl and accusing the Board of bias. He says that many other films featuring kisses, smooches and gory violence have been cleared by the Censor, but the board is coming down too hard on his film even though it doesn’t have a lip lock between Celina and Abhimanyu.
