Swara Bhaskar gears up for the release of her next Anaarkali of Aarah, videos of s*x scenes from the film leaked online on Tuesday. Some of these were removed from the final cut by the Central Board of Film Certification.
Avinash Das directorial Anaarkali of Aarah is a women-centric film. Its makers faced problems with the Censor Board and thus had to agree for various cuts. But it is surprising to see that those cuts have found their way online. The leaked video has some bold scenes which might have made the censor or the ‘scissors’ board uncomfortable. It also has Swara Bhaskar’s deleted b**b groping scene and another one where she showed her bare back.
Avinash said, “It is sad. I now fear the entire film might be leaked online before the release. If the censor copy of Udta Punjab could be leaked, the threat looms large for my movie as well.”
“I had no clue about this. I got to know only when you told me. Let me see what can be done,” he added.
Anaarkali of Aarah is the story of a folk singer of Ara district in Bihar.
The trailer of the film received a positive response from the audience, these leaked scenes might just make things difficult. But, as they say, all kinds of publicity is good publicity. Is it in this case?
