New Delhi: Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor's upcoming film 'Befikre', which is gaining youth's attention for its 'no string attached' chemistry and also making the headlines for its passionate kissing scenes, has reportedly been certified U/A by the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
According to a report in Deccan Chronicle, the CBFC - which has always been strict with such intimate sequences - has shockingly cleared the Aditya Chopra's directorial with a U/A certificate.
The report quoted CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani as saying, ''when we are strict with on-screen intimacy, people have a problem, when we let scenes of intimacy remain intact, people have a problem.''
''The images in 'Befikre' are not about the kisses alone. It’s about a whole lot of things, about love. The trailer shows kissing as a manifestation of love; it’s not there for titillation.'' he further added.
Nihalani also stated, ''all the kisses are in long shots. It’s only in close-ups that kissing on screen tends to look overblown. There is a difference between showing intimacy discreetly and getting so worked up about it that the camera becomes voyeuristic. As to why the CBFC has chosen to be liberal with the trailer, it’s because Aditya Chopra’s aesthetic sense makes the kissing look natural, and not vulgar at all.''
It is a film Chopra has directed after eight years. 'Befikre' is Chopra's fourth film as a director. it is slated to release on December 9 this year.
