Our Censor Board Is Now Literally Pulling Shit That A Comedy Sketch Predicted THREE Years Ago

Stranger than fiction.

Posted on

In June 2013, YouTube channel Auteur Mark Videos made a short sketch mocking the sort of ridiculous things filmmakers get to hear from the Indian Censor Board.

The video was written and performed by people who've actually dealt with the board members.

One of its more ridiculous beats involved "board member" Richa Chadda talking about kisses, and asking a filmmaker to reduce a kissing scene from 12 seconds to 8.

Keep in mind that this was back in 2013, because now, almost three years later to the day, our Censor Board has decided to cut a kissing scene in an upcoming film down to 9 seconds.

The kiss in question, from the Randeep Hooda and Kajal Aggarwal-starrer Do Lafzon Ki Kahani, was supposed to be 18 seconds long.

The coincidence has not gone unnoticed, with people mocking the Censor Board for literally living up to its regressive image in what was supposed to be a ludicrously exaggerated sketch.

Kudos to Indian Censor board for taking inspiration from a youtube sketch titled "Shit Indian Censors Say"

On the bright side, at least they only cut it to 9 seconds and not 8.
