Shudra word deleted from ‘A woman in Brahminism’
Mumbai, Oct 29: Film titled ‘A woman in Brahminism’ created lot of sensation on internet and also controversy for hurting the sentiments of brahmins as a whole. Brahmins enmasse protested against the release of the film and even made representation to AP Govt and Minister DK.Aruna. Ministers like Sridhar Babu personally wrote letter to Aruna. However with nothing happening, Union Minister Undavalli Arun Kumar took upon himself and filed complaint with Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni to take immediate and stern action against the producers of ‘a woman in brahmanism’.
Ambika Soni immediately ordered Central Board of Film Certification to conduct a thorough investigation. Regional Censor Officer in Mumbai, Mr. Jithendra Pratap Singh and a team of four panel members censored the Hindi Version in Mumbai. ‘We have recommended nearly 50% of cuts in explicit scenes. Then deleted the words of ‘Shudra’ and ‘Neecha Jaathi.’
Telugu version was also censored on October 4,’ says a report from CBFC. They allege that film makers used clippings that were not present in the film on internet and demanded strong action against them.It has to be seen whether this will calm the tempers of brahmin community as a whole.
