Shruti Seth: WTF The CBFC has added the proper noun “Bombay” to the list of things it considers unsuitable for impressionable Indian minds to contemplate. So what happens to #BombayVelvet now that #CBFC has #Bombaybeepedout.

Satyadeep Misra: Coz 'Mumbai Velvet' just doesn't sound the same!

Anurag Kashyap: Bombay Bombay Bombay.

Hansal Mehta: No point expressing outrage over censors and their actions. We voted for these 'achche din'.

Vivek Agnihotri: Till date I haven't used 'Mumbai'. For I came to Bombay not Mumbai. I just can't see it as anything else.
