In an unprecedented order, the Kolkata High Court has
upheld the directive given by West Bengal Board of Censorship
to distributors there not to display posters that showcase
lead actress Paoli Dam in sensuous positions in the
posters of Vikram Bhatts film Hate Story releasing
on 20 April.
is said that Jalan Distribuors moved the High Court
challenging the directions of the state Censor Board
to display the posters only after painting the bare
back of the actress as displayed in one of the posters,
with blue paint.
the Censor board had banned two posters of the film
where in one poster the actress shows her bare back
while in the other she is seen in a compromising position
with a man.
Board cleared the other six posters only after the
bare body of the actress was painted in blue.
