Veere Di Wedding movie is grabbing headlines over the masturbation scene featuring Swara Bhasker. While in India many slammed it, UAE censor board seems to have found it amoral and have taken steps to avoid it.
UAE censor board has cut the scene from the movie. In the scene, Swara is seen masturbating and pleasuring herself with a vibrator when suddenly her husband appears and is shocked to see her in that position. People on the social media started trolling and spreading negative comments and are calling it cheap and vulgar.
It later became a debatable topic with some appreciating it and others saying that looked forced.
According to Spotboye, a source as said, "Veere Di Wedding film has been received very well in Dubai, lekin woh Swara wala masturbation scene nahin hai (that Swara's masturbation scene is not there)."
The movie has been banned by Pakistan's Central Board of Film Censors (CBFC) due to "vulgar language".
According to Express Tribune, all the members of the censor board unanimously decided to ban the movie, while the film's distributors also withdrew their application to release it in Pakistan.
"'Veere Di Wedding' was screened before the full board and all members were surprised to see such content being displayed. "This film is not acceptable in our society due to its vulgarity and sexual dialogues are spoken by the four girls, and so, we decided to ban it," a senior Pakistan CBFC official told the publication.
Meanwhile, in India, Swara's mother Ira Bhasker has come out supporting her daughter.
Sonam Kapoor in support of Swara told ANI, "I think people just like to troll her because she has an opinion and a point of view and I guess that shows how much they love her because the other side of hate is always love, so Swara you have a lot of lovers."
This is the first time that Bollywood filmmakers have shown a woman enjoying an orgasm so openly on screen. Swara, in the movie, is seen playing the role of an independent woman whose marriage is on the verge of breaking.
