There’s sex, drugs and infidelity. Priyanka Chopra gets intimate with her seven on-screen husbands, including John Abraham. No wonder then, that Vishal Bhardwaj’s upcoming flick, 7 Khoon Maaf has been given an ‘A’ certificate by the Censor Board.
But no one is complaining, as it means the film releases on February 18, without any cuts. “Neither Priyanka nor John was awkward during the intimate scenes. They are both very professional,” says a source from the film unit, who did not wish to be named. “This is John Abraham’s boldest role, ever. He plays a hedonistic character. He is seen bedding multiple partners, and even wears noodle strap tops and satin bows in bed,” adds the source. “We knew right from the beginning that we are making an adult film. The audience is mature, and it is not about specific scenes in the film,” says Vikas Bahl of UTV, the movie’s producers. The film’s director, Bhardwaj, too, doesn’t mind the A certificate. “I am happy with the ‘A’ certificate. The film has already been chosen for the Panorama section of the Berlin International film Festival, and that’s a matter of pride.”
