Censor board chief Prasoon Joshi on Friday expressed his displeasure over sure sequences from actor Swara Bhasker’s newest internet sequence “Rasbhari”, asserting that content material creators should be extra accountable. Set in Meerut, “Rasbhari” revolves round a boy Nand (Ayushmaan Saxena) who falls for his instructor (Swara). Things complicate when individuals discover out concerning the instructor’s supposed “sex-obsessed” alter-ego. The sequence is written by Shantanu Shrivastava and directed by Nikhil Nagesh Bhatt.
The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chairman mentioned the makers ought to have spared the kids of their “desperate” want for leisure. “Saddened by Web series #Rasbhari’s irresponsible content portraying a little girl child dancing provocatively in front of men drinking.
Creators & audience need to seriously rethink freedom of expression or freedom of exploitation? Let’s spare children in the desperate need for entertainment,” Joshi mentioned.
The sequence, co-created and produced by Applause Entertainment and Tanveer Bookwala, began streaming on Amazon Prime Video on Thursday.
In response to Joshi’s criticism, Bhasker mentioned the lyricist had most likely missed the subtext of the scene. “With due respect sir, maybe you misunderstand the scene. It is the opposite of what you describe. The child is dancing of her own will and the father feels embarrassed. The dance is not provocative, the child is just dancing, she does not know that the society will sexualise her too. This is what the scene shows.”
आदर सहित सर, शायद आप scene ग़लत समझ रहे हैं। सीन जो वर्णन किया है उसके ठीक उल्टा है। बच्ची अपने मर्ज़ी से नाच रही है- पिता देख कर झेंप जाता है & शर्मिंदा होता है।नाच उत्तेजक नहीं है, बच्ची बस नाच रही है, वो नहीं जानती समाज उसे भी sexualise करेगा- scene यही दिखाता है। #Rashbhari https://t.co/xUAmRBHHjJ

Bookwala additionally defended the show. “Sir, I really feel just like the scene has misrepresented itself to you. Or you’ve missed the obtrusive subtext and meta satire. We’ve all lived by the household circus and dance. This isn’t a gender or age myopic exploitation, it’s the hypocrisy of the consequences of popular culture on society,” he tweeted.
The series also features Rashmi Agdekar, Pradyuman Singh, Neelu Kohli and Chitranjan Tripathi.
