CBFC Asks for a Dowry Disclaimer in ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’

The CBCF plays it safe by asking for a disclaimer on dowry in Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan’s ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’.

A  hardhitting reference to the dreaded dowry system has the Censor Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) demanding an unambiguous disclaimer from Karan Johar, the producer of Badrinath Ki Dulhania.

According to sources, the infamous dowry system plays a prominent part in the plot.

Although the film and its makers in no way endorse the dowry system the censor board has demanded a clear disclaimer at the beginning of the opening credit titles stating the film and its makers do not endorse the dowry system.

Besides this disclaimer, the CBFC has also demanded the removal of the word pichhwada (backside) from Varun Dhawan’s dialogue.

Both Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt are youth icons. They should be careful of what they say and the values they uphold on screen.
