Ekta Kapoor's much talked about scary date flick, 'Ragini MMS', has not gone down too well with the Censor Board. They have asked for three scenes from the film to be cut and have given it an 'A' certificate.
Despite the 'A' certificate, the Censor found the scenes too explicit. These included one where the male lead Rajkumar talks to his girlfriend Kainaz about the after-effects of aphrodisiac tablets. Another showed Rajkumar's character asking his girlfriend to indulge in oral sex, while the third and final scene was in contention over the language used when the couple were intimate.
Meanwhile even as the makers of 'Ragini MMS' come to terms with the verdict of the Censor board, there has been a new controversy. Apparently, the real Ragini- (Deepika, a 22 year old girl from Delhi- on whose real-life story the film is based) called for a press conference as she is upset with producer Ekta Kapoor for not showing her the film in advance as was stipulated in the contract.
