As Censor cuts down 'Spectre', tweeple laugh at 'Sanskari James Bond'
The Indian censor board has reportedly cut the long kissing scenes between Daniel Craig and Monica Bellucci in the upcoming James Bond movie, 'Spectre', stating that they are 'too long and too much' for Indian audience.
The film was given a U/A certificate after two audio and two video cuts. But the two visual cuts are Bond's passionate kisses. The length of the kisses between Craig and Bellucci have also reportedly been truncated for Indian viewers by 50 per cent. The board has also decided that Bond cannot use the "F" word.
Twitter reacted to decision of the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) with outrage resulting in the hilarious hashtag #SanskariJamesBond, which started trending on the micro blogging site.
