The makers of India's first ever song video on homosexual love titled Miss You are upset with the Central Board of Film Certification for their "biased" decision of granting an "A" certificate to the video.
After having an "A" certificate from the CBFC initially, the music video by New Delhi-based gay band Friends of Linger was again submitted for review. However, it received the same certificate again along with a letter, asking them to delete the "intimate visuals" if they want a U/A certificate.
Expressing angst at the decision of the CBFC, makers of Miss You said that there is no such intimate visual in the video and called it an "unfair" decision.
"It is a completely unfair and bias decision. The country has way more intimate scenes in heterosexual videos than this video. We have been asked to make a cut. However, this video is available online. One can clearly see that in Miss You there is neither a kiss or a hug or any love making. What's the issue? It's a 10-second shot leading to separation and not some scene that you see in so much of Hindi content on TV," DNA quoted Sharif D Rangnekar, founder of Friends of Linger as saying.
