When everything was going smooth for the makers of Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan’s ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya’, the film hits the road block from none other than the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). According to a report in DNA, the CBFC has issued a U/A certificate to the Dharma Productions film ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya’. But CBFC wants the makers to get an NOC (No Objection Certificate) from the matrimonial website Shaadi.com and that’s the condition under which it gave a U/A certificate. “The name of the site crops up throughout the film and hence, the CBFC has asked producer Karan Johar to submit an NOC from the site in question. Only then would they be allowed to retain the name in the film,” it quoted a source as saying.
“A recent legal issue, concerning Running Shaadi.com saw the makers dropping the ‘.com’ from their title and from every mention in the film. The Board can’t allow a repeat of the same tamasha post-certification,” the source added.
Also the CBFC is demanding an unambiguous disclaimer from Karan Johar, the producer of ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ as the infamous dowry system plays a prominent part in the plot.
The Quint has reported that a source from CBFC says, “although the film and its makers in no way endorse the dowry system the censor board has demanded a clear disclaimer at the beginning of the opening credit titles stating the film and its makers do not endorse the dowry system.”
According to The Quint, besides this disclaimer, the CBFC has also demanded the removal of the word pichhwada (backside) from Varun Dhawan’s dialogue, the source says.
The reason is definitely funny. “Both Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt are youth icons. They should be careful of what they say and the values they uphold on screen”, mentions the source.
We wonder, what would have happened to the film in case Varun’s character would have been a thief or something like that.
