Sri Sri 108 Sanskari James Bond: License to kill, not to kiss

A Bond film without long-drawn kisses is an oxymoron in itself. Much awaited James Bond film Spectre, slated to release in India on November 20, went through the Censor Board scissors and returned a little colder.

Reports from Rediff spoke of four changes to both verbal and visual content, which includes Bond’s famous kissing scenes, on account of the “passionate kisses” being “too long”.

But the length of the kisses was found to be unnecessarily excessive. We heard that Ranbir Kapoor’s kissing scenes in Tamasha has also been reduced by half. We wonder how the Censor Board decides how much kissing is enough,” an anonymous source was quoted as saying.

Perhaps James Bond should now take lessons from desi sanskari boy Imraan Hashmi, whose kisses, however much their length, never had to undergo the Censor scissors.

The Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) also stopped Bond from saying the F-word and ‘a**hole’, before letting the film scrape by with a ‘UA’ rating. One is forced to wonder what exactly India has against the famed secret agent, considering that the Indian Railways had denied permission to shoot a train sequence for the last Bond movie Skyfall. This sanskari decision by the Censor board has turned it into one of Twitter’s top troll targets via the trending #SanskariJamesBond. Here are some of the funniest of the lot:
