Censor Board wants James Bond to kiss less, twitter trends #SanskariJamesBond


Indian censor board headed by Pahlaj Nihalani has reportedly issued UA‘ certification to Daniel Craig’s James Bond film Spectre and decided to cut four scenes-two verbal and two visual.

Rediff.com reported that the visual cuts were the passionate kisses involving the male protagonist of the movie, known as the James Bond.

 “Daniel Craig’s kisses with his co-stars have been reduced by 50 percent, The Censor Board had nothing against James Bond kissing but the length of the kisses were found to be excessive. We heard that Ranbir Kapoor’s kissing in Tamasha has also been reduced by half. We wonder how the Censor Board decides how much kissing is enough,” the website quoted a source.

The news has sent social media into a frenzy with everyone mocking the Indian censor board, which has been in the centre of controversy on multiple occasions since Nihalani’s appointment as its chief.

Censor Baord was a top twitter trend. Soon the angry social media users began to trend #SanskariJamesBond suggesting the ;potential story lines and characters of future Bond movies in line with Nihalani’s ‘sanskari’ ideas.

Here’s are what the social media users are tweeting about this controversy:
