Damn, I wonder what India would have thought of Shortbus? Ok so here’s the deal… 2 Bollywood actors, Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan, are being CHARGED with obscenity for… are you ready for this… KISSING in a movie. Yup, looks like a lawyer has filed a CRIMINAL case against them. Yahoo News gives us this:
Shailendra Dwivedi of Indore, near Bhopal, the capital of central Madhya Pradesh state, said the scene from the movie, titled “Dhoom 2,” lowered the dignity of Indian women and gave an obscene message to youth. “Bollywood actors are conveying vulgarity in the society,” Dwivedi told Reuters. “These films cannot be watched with our families, they are so vulgar at times.”
Hell, they should be charged just for making a movie called “Dhoom 2″… sounds too much like Doom… and that sucked ass.
Look, we shouldn’t jump to judge another culture… who’s to say they’re not right and we’re not just a bunch of depraved perverts? It’s just that the cultural differences this story highlights really blow my mind. Excuse me, I have to go watch some porn now.
