Smoking On Screen: India Film


Konkona’s cigarette creates a problem

Did you know that director Manu Rewal’s ‘Chai Pani Etc’ met with stiff resistance from the unpredictable Censor Board?

The censors objected to a scene showing Konkona Sen Sharma smoking a cigarette. Thereafter, the film got stuck for seven months! The director was keen on entering the competition section of the International Film Festival in Goa. By then, the cut-off date for entering the film had elapsed. Strange, hot smooching and lovemaking scenes are allowed to go by but just one cigarette isn’t!!!
