‘Tere Bin Laden’ has trouble with the censor board

June 14, 2010

tere bin laden 200x126Walkwater’s and Abhishek Sharma’s Tere Bin Laden did meet with some trouble from the censor board when a certain word in the film happened to sound like a cuss word..

The scene in the question is a comic one where a talking rooster happens to shout the word “pencho” out aloud. This didn’t go down too well with the censor board thanks to its similarity with a cuss word. It was then that the director Abhishek Sharma had to step in and convince the board that no pun was intended.

Reveals a production source “The censor board had a problem with the word pencho and asked for the scene to be removed. But Abhishek managed convinced them to include the scene telling them that pencho is the name of an old artist and that no pun was intended. It’s purely funny and doesn’t come across as offensive”
