The butt is blurred in 'Deadpool 2': Pahlaj Nihalani

Mumbai, March 22 (IANS) The internet is going ballistic over Ryan Reynolds's butt shot in the trailer of "Deadpool 2" and how the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) Chairperson Pahlaj Nihalani has turned over a new leaf, but he is not biting the bait.

"The trailer that we've been shown for censor approval is not a full-fledged bum shot. It's a bum shot in a blur. The hero is changing in a telephone booth. We see his bum from outside a semi-opaque glass pane."

"If it was a proper bum shot we would have probably cut it. For no other reason except for the fact that it does not serve any purpose except one of distraction. Bum shots do not drive the plot forward. So unless the trailer being shown in the internet has a clear bum shot there is nothing to get hot and bothered about," said Nihalani.

He also points out that the trailer of "Deadpool 2" has been certified for "Adults Only".

"It has lurid violent content. The super-hero is shown resting his head on the torso of murdered man on the street enjoying icecream. This is probably their idea of fun. And we are no one to approve or disapprove. 

"We've certified it as adult fun. The trailer cannot be played with 'U' or 'UA' feature films," he said.
