Director Avinash Das is an angry man today. His latest film ‘Anaarkali of Aarah’ is in a tug of war with the Censor Board over certain bold scenes. After much debate they had agreed to three cuts which have now made their way to the internet.
The online video has actor Swara Bhaskar’s deleted boob groping scene and another one where she showed her bare back. The producers have decided to file an FIR for a police probe into this entire case of piracy.
‘Anaarkali of Aarah’ is a story of small town dancer facing a male dominated society. This women centric film has Swara Bhaskar in the lead and ably supported by veteran artists like Sanjay Mishra and Pratik Tripathi.
The movie has already courted controversy for its reference to Veer Kunwar Singh University located in Bihar’s Bhojpur district, of which Aarah is the headquarter. The trailer of the movie features an item number shot as part of the silver jubilee functions of this university. The University administration is furious over this depiction and reportedly said that it maligned the image of freedom fighter Kunwar Singh and also the people of Bihar.
