Sunny Deol is not in great spirits. One of his song from his upcoming film “Singh Saab the Great” is been banned by Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). They say the lyrics of the song are “ashleel”. The lyrics in question are “Khaike palang tod paan, Tune le li meri jaan, Haari haari main to haari, Chal hat beimaan”, picturised on Sunny Deol, Simran Khan and Prakash Raj.
Now my question is if we can watch Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor shaking their butt, merrily singing “Shake the Tooh round round gore gore chote chote tooh” in Punit Malhotra’s Gori Tere Pyar Mein, than why not watch palang thod paan? As a Punjabi I know actually tooh is “toohei”, butts in Punjabi are called “toohei.” The complete song, lyrics and moves are double meaning. But is very openly and without any burnt from censor board is shown on TV.
I am supporting Sunny Deol, “cut the Tooh or let’s be fair and have palang tod also on TV”! I think Palang tod should be released as it is and let the audience decide if it is ashleel or not! What say???
“Gand mein dum hai to” the word “gand” is mute from the song now, too late. Song and Lyrics already had grabbed ears and eyes.
Sunny Deol and Anil who had to rework the trailer of their film after the CBFC dictate, have now approached the Revising Committee. The Board’s intervention came at a time when the makers were planning to release the song during Diwali to make the most of the festive season, when TV TRPs are usually at an annual high.
Sharma, the director of the film said, "My promotional strategy has been spoilt. I don’t think the song deserved such an extreme reaction, The Board has okayed other songs which were far more offensive. We have been needlessly targeted."
The decision comes at a time when the I & B Ministry is considering setting up a separate committee (headed by retired Judge Mukul Mudgal) to clear songs before exhibition.
