‘I Was Born Naked,’ a Filmmaker’s Perfect Reply to the CBFC
This filmmaker has the perfect response for the CBFC after it refused to certify his film over issues of nudity
After Bollywood movie Udta Punjab bore the brunt of CBFC’s senseless censorship just a week ago, Saijo Kannanaikkal’s debut Malayalam movie ‘Kathakali’ was recently refused a certificate by the board over ‘nudity’.
The movie-makers, with the backing of the Film Employees Federation of Kerala (FEFKA), had moved the Kerala High Court in the matter and even staged a protest led by FEFKA general secretary B Unnikrishnan in front of the CBFC regional office at Chitranjali Studio in Thiruvananthapuram on Monday.
But the director Saijo has the perfect response to it – a hilarious music video on how he likes being naked. It is with subtitles, so if you don’t understand Malayalam, it is still a lot of fun. Time to quit, Pahlaj.
