#SanskariJamesBond: When Twitterati mocked censor board chief Pahlaj Nihlani
New Delhi, Nov 20: Social media went abuzz after reports emerged that CBFC chief and filmmaker Pahlaj Nihalani expressed his displeasure over the 'length' of kisses in the latest James Bond flick 'Spectre'. Twitterati immediately took to their twitter handles and slammed the censor board chief for his weird observations.
As per reports, the censor board has ordered two visual cuts in the film citing the length of kisses in the film. As a result both of James Bond's kissing scenes have been reduced by 50%.
Media reports quoted a source as saying, "Both of Daniel Craig's kisses with his co-stars have been reduced by 50%. The censor board had nothing against James Bond kissing. But the length of the kisses were found to be unnecessarily excessive."
The film releasing in India on Friday, will have four cuts, two verbal and two visual.
After reports of censor board order cuts over length of the kisses in the movie, twitterati slammed the CBFC chief and #SanskariJamesBond started trending on Twitter. Twitterati wondered how Hollywood's most popular spy character would look if donned a traditional style.
