Cuss words get registered in our minds due to their blunt usage. So when any similar sounding words also start falling in the same category, their pronunciation creates embarrassing situations. A similar case has come to light with the CBFC not giving a clearance to ‘Bank Chor’ starring Ritesh Deshmukh and Vivek Oberoi. Explanation: The name of the film sounds like a cuss word.
Remember Praful from ‘Khichdi’ who would break words and draw out a different meaning altogether? Looks like the makers of the ‘Bank Chor’, Y Films, have apparently taken some good inspiration from this!
Aware of the fact that CBFC would never pass a title similar to a commonly used cuss word seems that the makers of the film got overconfident about it and tired of playing with their creativity, using a rhyming phrase – ‘Bank Chor’.
Remember the song “DK Bose” from Aamir Khan’s Delhi Belly? The song was given a go-ahead by the CBFC but later it landed the board in trouble after I&B Ministry had asked an explanation because the song received a lot of complaints from angry viewers. Looks like this time the board wants to avoid the situation.
“The makers of the film thought they were being very clever by using a title that sounds like a bad word, and they assumed every time the other actors say ‘Bank Chor’, the audience would roar with laughter,” as per a report published by DNA.
The trailer of the film is a funny roller-coaster ride and have some good comic punches too!
