In her ambitious move from saas to saucy (Mumbai Mirror, April 19), Ekta Kapoor has faced yet another obstacle. On May 5, we told you how the filmmaker’s promotions for her upcoming project Ragini MMS, based on the real life experience of 22-year old Deepika from Delhi, did not go down well with the authorities.
Many of the hoardings around the city were taken down on charges of vulgarity. Now we hear that the A -rated film, which underwent intense scrutiny by the censor board last afternoon, will not include three significant scenes.
A source close to the film explained, “The Censors objected to three scenes in particular:
1. When Rajkumar and Kainaz (the male and female lead in the film) reach the bungalow to spend a weekend, he talks to her about taking aphrodisiac tablets and the impact it would have on his anatomy in graphic language
2. Rajkumar visually indicates his expectations from her regarding oral sex
3. While the couple get intimate, they use outrageously vulgar language referring to male and female genitals.”
When asked how Ekta and her team in Balaji have reacted to the deletion of the scenes, the source said, “Nothing can be done.

Here’s the real life story which inspired Kapoor’s sensuous paranormal thriller all set to release on Friday the thirteenth

She tried to hide it, but we managed to pull the cat out of the bag. Ekta Kapoor’s forthcoming paranormal thriller Ragini MMS, which is already making news with the ‘A’ certificate and unrestrained sexual scenes, is based on 22-year-old Delhi girl Deepika.
Talking to Mumbai Mirror last evening, Deepika however decided to keep certain things about her a secret still. “I don’t wish to reveal my surname. You can understand why. But yes, Ragini MMS is inspired by what happened to me one night when I went out with my boyfriend. I was 19 then,” revealed the girl.Ekta’s Ragini MMS encapsulates the real life experience of Deepika (above)
Like in Ekta Kapoor’s forthcoming film, Deepika and her boyfriend (name withheld by request) had gone out for a weekend to a house in the outskirts of Delhi.
“The area was very dark. Somehow, I got a lot of negative vibes when I entered that place. But then when you are with a person you trust, you know how it is.
I did not pay any attention. But I was very uncomfortable throughout the night. All along, I felt somebody was watching us,” said she.
After a night in each other’s arms, Deepika was shocked to see the laptop they carried switched on. Her boyfriend had recorded the entire passionate interlude.
So why go with him in the first place? “I More >

A week or two ago, while surfing the TV channels, I chanced upon this immensely enjoyable Govinda starrer that was being telecast for the umpteenth time. Despite the fact that I had watched it time and again, I decided to watch it yet again, complimenting and applauding Govinda’s natural act and comic timing in the movie. That Govinda is a fabulous actor cannot be denied. Of course, the reasons for his not being in the limelight could be several, but even his detractors will agree that when it comes to certain roles, he’s pure dynamite.BY BOLLYWOOD HUNGAMA.COM
NAUGHTY @ 40, Govinda’s new release, aims at bringing the actor back in the reckoning, a position that he once enjoyed not too long ago. NAUGHTY @ 40 is vintage Govinda fare replete with his by-now-famous characteristics, body language, dialogue delivery and even pelvic thrusts that the masses have gleefully mastered over the years. The only difference is, the actor plays a 40-year-old virgin in this sex comedy.
Clearly inspired by THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN, NAUGHTY @ 40 has been adapted to suit the Indian sensibilities. But director Jagmohan Mundhra ensures that it’s not an out-and-out ‘naughty’ experience. The first hour has moments that keep you rolling in your seat as the humor gets raunchier and unsophisticated, laughing at Govinda when his attempts to deal with his problems go awry. From crude hilarity to syrupy sentimentality, the post-interval More >
MKD Films, the banner under which Manmohan Desai, the father of Bollywood masala entertainers had produced hits like Amar Akbar Anthony, Naseeb, Coolie and Toofan is all set to make a comeback.
Son Ketan Desai and granddaughter Pooja Desai will be reviving the banner after almost a decade of slumber. As the first step, the banner will produce a Marathi film, disclosed Ketan’s close source.
After Manmohan Desai’s demise in 1994, the prospering production house slumped with just two releases, Deewana Mastana in 1997 and Yeh Hai Jalwa in 2002.Ketan Desai will revive father Manmohan Desai’s banner, MKD Films. A poster of Toofan, Coolie and Amar Akbar Anthony made by MKD Films
When we spoke to Pooja, she admitted that they are indeed bringing the banner back to life. “Yes that’s true. But the right person to give you complete details is my father,” she said over the phone.
“The film stars Ashok Saraf and Subodh Bhave. Sonali Kulkarni who had acted in Natarang is the female lead. Rajesh Deshpande is directing it and I will be the creative director,” revealed Ketan.
So what urged him to revive the banner with a Marathi film? “It was my father’s dying wish to make a film in Marathi as he owed everything that he was to Maharashtra,” replied Manmohan Desai’s son.
“The mahurat will take place on April 25. And if health permits, Shammi Kapoor will be giving the first clap to kickstart the film,” informed More >

Till then, Bigg Boss will continue to be telecast in the prime time slot of 9 pm.
The government Wednesday directed Colors and NDTV Imagine TV channels to change the broadcast timings of their shows – ‘Bigg Boss’ and ‘Rakhi Ka Insaaf’ – to a late night slot following complaints of vulgarity.

Mumbai: The Akhil Bharatiya Maratha Mahasangh (ABMM)’s threat to stop the screening of Shikshanachya Aaycha Gho, a Marathi film by noted actor director Mahesh Manjrekar, has yet again brought to the fore the vexatious issue of parallel censorship by political organisations.
The ABMM, which claims to represent the Maratha community, is upset with the film’s “derogatory’’ title. Manjrekar is unwilling to yield to the ABMM’s demand, while the ABMM chief Shahsikant Pawar has warned that his followers will tear down the screens of movie halls which exhibit …Gho. The ABMM has submitted a memorandum to the regional censor board demanding that the word Aay (mother) be dropped from the title.
The …Gho controversy could prove to be an embarrassment for the DF government, say political observers. While chief minister Ashok Chavan has extended full security to Manjrekar for the film’s release on January 15, education minister Balasaheb Thorat has voiced his objection to the film’s title, thus strengthening the ABMM’s case.
While the Shiv Sena has backed …Gho, Manjrekar is said to be banking on the Raj Thackeray-led MNS as well. Manjrekar called on Raj early this week. “The ABMM doesn’t have much presence in Mumbai and Thane. MNS activists will swing into action if the ABMM workers try to obstruct the screening,’’ said an MNS functionary on Wednesday. Sena CEO Uddhav Thackeray has complimented the film for taking a hard look at More >
