Censor Board under Pahlaj Nihalni has gone out with a chopper to shape up films according to what they think is appropriate. Why bother with what people really want to see? The bond film Spectre released with many cuts, leading to the hilarious Twitter trend #SanskariJamesBond. And of course, no discount for Indian films.

International filmmaker Pan Nalin's film Angry Indian Goddesses, which is said to be "India’s first female buddy movie" has reportedly had the same fate, as the Censor Board has cut out what they feel are "profane references to Hindu goddesses".

One of the film's actresses, Tannishtha Chatterjee, confirms this development to DNA and says, "The film that fetched me so much acclaim abroad and the film that has been cut by the Censor are two different entities. Now, my role is almost nothing.”

However it is interesting to observe that when Firstpost contacted Pan Nalin he revealed that he was travelling so he doesn't know what has been done with his film.

"I do not know and haven't met Tanishtha. Both the producers are in process of that. I do not have any details at all. We are releasing the film in so many countries, working with each distributor in each different countries. I know that distributors who are distributing the films are taking care of it," said Nalin

When he was questioned if the film would retain its essence after these cuts, he said, "I think it's difficult to know before hand. Practically, as I am not aware of any details, it wouldn't be even right to comment either about censor board or about anything. I do know there are strict rules, be it our film or anyone else's film. The distributors have said that they are in process and they are going ahead with the release on December 4."

Angry Indian Goddesses is the story of seven friends Sarah-Jane Dias Sandhya Mridul, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Anushka Manchanda, Amrit Maghera, Rajshri Deshpande and Pavleen Gujral.
