Sunny Leone’s ‘Mastizaade’ Faces Problems From Censor Board

“Mastizaade” is an upcoming sex comedy movie starring Tusshar Kapoor and Vir Das in the lead alongside Leone with  Ritesh Deshmukh as a guest appearance.

“Mastizaade” had been banned by both Examining Committee (EC) and the Revising Committee (RC). Later, Milap Zaveri, the director, approached the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) to challenge the reports of the previous committees. Bollywood Hungama reported that the Bollywood movie was waiting for certification from the censor board that resulted the delay in releasing the movie. However, recently, the censor board has confirmed that the film cannot be given green signal to hit the big screen.

“The film is only concerned with the exploration of the different parts of the human anatomy, both male and female and is such as to deprave the minds of the audience,” according to a report released by Tribunal.

“Freedom of expression cannot and should not be interpreted as a license for the cine-magnates to make huge sums of money by pandering to shoddy and vulgar tastes,” the report also added.

Sunny Leone, who is an Indo-Canadian actress and model, started her career in the porn industry in 2001. She was voted number 13 (up from 41) on “Genesis” magazine’s “Top 100 Porn stars” list in 2007. An international men’s magazine named “Maxim” ranked Leone as one of the top 12 female stars in porn in 2010.

After her Bollywood debut in Pooja Bhatt’s erotic thriller “Jism 2” in 2012, Leone started focusing on mainstream acting. She also received good critics for her performance in her previous Bollywood films “Jackpot,” “Ragini MMS 2” and “Ek Paheli Leela.”
