Here is the latest buzz doing the round of the inner circles of Bollywood. It’s been reported of late about Balaji Telefilm’s Ekta Kapoor’s diktat on the ‘nudity clause’, in her upcoming film ‘XXX’ as a mandatory clause in all the contract, and it seems that director Sanjay Sharma is the biggest supporter of the initiative taken by the Czarina of Bollywood.
And now according to the reliable sources associated with the controversial gay love story ‘Dunno Y2……..Life is a moment’, director Sanjay Sharma was so aghast at the attitude of his leading lady, the Pakistani heroine Sadia whilst shooting the film and wished he too would have had the liberty of such a clause as that of Ekta Kapoor. Apparently, Sadia created quite an uproar when she had to just do a kissing scene in the film. Sadia refused to kiss the Indian actor Kapil Sharma in the film, and backed out in the last moment as she was scared of the backlash in Pakistan.
The shooting came to a halt as the director was heard saying that, “if Aishwarya Rai, Kareena Kapoor, Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit et al could do it, why can’t Sadia do it, as it was an important scene in the film, which drives it ahead. it was very unprofessional on her part”
The source added, “Even Sadia had her point of view and tried explaining to the unit that even though India is an open country, the celebrities involved in the kissing scenes had to face legal notices by the hardline fringe elements here too. And Pakistan is a much more conservative Muslim country. Besides once it get viral, will be difficult to digitally erase it, and the bigoted lobbies in Pakistan will exploit it for eternity”
But the source also bitchily added, “What Sadia didn’t actually say is that her boyfriend in Pakistan will not approve of the Kissing scene.”
Well, well maybe Ekta Kapoor has a relevant point here on her ‘nudity’ clause in contract what with actress developing cold feet whilst shooting after agreeing at the script narration.
Like they say in Hindi, picture abtak baki hai, seems like the ‘Kissa Kiss Ka’ will unravel more secrets.
Ekta Kapoor’s Adds a clause of “Nudity” for the prospective actors of ‘XXX’
Balaji Telefilms head honcho Ekta Kapoor has recently added a strict clause of “nudity” for the prospective débutante Actors Of ‘XXX’
Incidentally speaking Ekta Kapoor indeed seems to have made a bold move by adding the ‘nudity clause’ for actors who will be seen in her upcoming film ‘XXX’. This clause also pertains to actors belonging to Balaji Stable, mainly the ones who will be playing the leads in her upcoming erotica ‘XXX’. Already the film’s posters are making news for their bold approach but the producer without any inhibitions has decided to go ahead with the addition of the clause.
Considering the theme of the film, it is obvious that it will have a lot of sequences related to sex and other provocative elements. In order to avoid any kind of compromise, Mademoiselle Ekta Kapoor is now making sure that her actors don’t back out and hence have decided to include the “nudity” clause’ so that they do not reject any intimate scenes or dialogues at the last moment. Ken Ghosh, who will be directing ‘XXX’, mentioned that this is a techno-legal clause that was put on paper after many discussions. He further added that ‘XXX’ is a straight forward erotica which is not pushed under the pretext of any other genre. As far as the cast of ‘XXX’ is concerned, the makers are planning to rope in new faces. This erotica is a blend of 5 stories that explore sexuality in a different way in each story.
