After the release of Rockstar last week, this weekend there are no major movie releases. This will change come 25th November, when Desi Boyz, a comedy starring Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone and Chitrangda Singh in the leads. The movie was watched by the censor board this week, and got an A certificate. However, the movie is meant for an family audience, so the makers were going for a U/A certificate for their high budget production. The A certificate could cost Desi Boyz considerable business. An explanation for this decision by the censors could be that John and Akshay play strippers in the movie.
The Dirty Picture, starring Vidya Balan in the lead, was also reviewed by the Censor Board this week. Interestingly, it passed without any cuts, getting an A certificate. This is surprising, given that the AP High Court asked the Censor Board to decide whether the movie should be released at all. The film, based on south actress Silk Smitha’s life, releases on December, 2nd.
