Watch: SRK reacts to CBFC’s disapproval of the term ‘intercourse’ in Jab Harry Met Sejal

Published

on

New Delhi, July 5: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who is leaving no stone unturned to promote his upcoming film “Jab Harry Met Sejal”, says that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has misunderstood the word ‘intercourse’. He says neither he nor people associated with his upcoming film Jab Harry Met Sejal need to use anything “disrespectful” to sell it.

In one of the ‘mini-trails’ of the Imtiaz Ali movie, actor Anushka Sharma is seen handing over an ‘indemnity bond’ to Shah Rukh, saying there won’t be any legal ramifications if the couple ends up having intercourse. This didn’t go down well with Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chairman Pahlaj Nihalani, who condemned the telecast of the mini-trail which was meant for digital consumption only. After the brouhaha, he demanded that if he gets one lakh votes from the common people in its support, he will clear the usage of “intercourse”.

When Shah Rukh was asked about the same during the song launch of the film on Monday night, he said: “The way people have voted in favour of us, I feel, same way they should come to watch our film. I will be very happy.”

“I feel the CBFC misunderstood the context of that word. We respect CBFC a lot. It’s our department. They are doing their job and we are doing ours and as far as that scene is concerned, I don’t think there is anything objectionable in that.”

On Monday, Shah Rukh Khan, Imtiaz Ali and Anushka Sharma launched their second song “Beech beech Mein” which is a club song from their forthcoming film, in a club called Tamasha, here.

While speaking to the media, Shah Rukh revealed that he has not gone for clubbing much.

Talking about his clubbing experience, he said: “I haven’t gone for clubbing much. When I was in Delhi, that time I never used to have that much money to go into clubs and then I came here (Mumbai) to act in movies and became a star so I haven’t had much opportunity to go into clubs here as well. Whatever club hopping I have done is all because of Imtiaz while shooting for this film.”

We are yet to send the film to the censors and they should watch the whole film to decide.” Jab Harry Met Sejal is releasing on August 4, he added.

Apart from Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma, Evelyn Sharma and Sayani Gupta also feature in the film. It is produced by Gauri Khan under production company Red Chillies Entertainment.

Joe Jackson hospitalized, in final stages of terminal cancer

Los Angeles, June 23: Joe Jackson, father of Michael, Janet and the performing family, and architect of The Jackson 5, is in the final stages of terminal cancer, a source close to the situation confirmed to Variety.com.

Family members, including his wife Katherine, are said to have visited him in the hospital this week, reports the website.

Jackson, 89, has suffered from a variety of ailments in recent years, including dementia, strokes, and at least one heart attack, according to reports. He was injured in a car accident a year ago.

The famously headstrong Jackson, the father of 11 children, drove his performing family hard and at times subjected them to physical and mental abuse; the original Jackson 5 included sons Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, and Michael, although younger sibling Randy also performed with the group and daughters LaToya, Rebbie, and, most famously, Janet also released albums.

Over the decades, Joe has had a contentious relationship with many family members, including Michael.

The Daily Mail claims that Jackson’s “handlers” had barred certain family members from visiting him, which son and former Jackson 5 member Jermaine spoke about to the paper.

The Jackson family patriarch has lived in Las Vegas for several years. One of his most recent public appearances was at the BET Awards in 2015, attending with his daughter Janet as she accepted the ultimate icon award. That same year, he suffered a stroke that reportedly left him with temporarily blurred vision.
