Buddha Mar Gaya shocks Censors

Though the film has been passed uncut by the censor board, some members of the censor board were apparently dumbstuck by the film’s double entendres and crude undercurrents. Anupam Kher who plays a corpse throughout the film, laughs. “It’s an out-and-out wacky comedy. Nothing as blunt and straightforward has been done before. If it works, it would be a cult hit like Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron, though the corpse (played by Satish Shah) in Kundan Shah’s film had to be hidden from the public whereas the corpse in Buddha Mar Gaya has to be constantly displayed. I had a very tough time looking dead throughout with my eyes open. My practice in Yoga helped.” Apparently the jokes include phallic references with the Anupam Kher character’s private part being stuffed into a case and sent to the female police officer who instantly recognizes the body part. Laughs Anupam, “All I can say is Buddha Mar Gaya isn’t a comedy for the squeamish. The gags include old songs on the soundtrack which the producer has acquired legally. These include three songs from Omkara and my theme song is Yeh duniya utpataanga from my recent film Khosla Ka Ghosla.” The comedy in Buddha Mar Gaya is far removed from Khosla Ka Ghosla. “It sure is,” concedes Anupam. “I must admit I’m stunned by Rakhi Sawant’s star power. At all our media promotional events and everywhere they’ve taken us, Rakhi was mobbed by hysterical crowds. Let’s not get snobbish about her stardom, like we did with Himesh Reshammiya. Both are the darling of the public and we might as well face it,” ends Anupam.
