Sorry, James Bond can't kiss!

November 18, 2015 12:52 IST
The new James Bond movie, Spectre, has been cleared by the Censor Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) with a 'UA' certification... but only after four cuts, two verbal and two visual.
 
The visual cuts are passionate kisses!
 
"Daniel Craig’s kisses with his co-stars have been reduced by 50 percent," says a source. "The Censor Board had nothing against James Bond kissing
but the length of the kisses were found to be excessive. We heard that Ranbir Kapoor’s kissing in Tamasha has also been reduced by half. We wonder how the Censor Board decides how much kissing is enough."
 
James Bond is also not allowed to abuse, and the film needs the verbal cuts.
 
The CBFC probably thinks profanity does not suit gentlemen on his majesty’s secret service.
 
In the picture: Monica Bellucci and Daniel Craig in Spectre.
