New Delhi: Bollywood actor John Abraham and Anil Kapoor, who are set for the release of Anees Bazmee’s comedy, Pagalpanti, have talked about how to be funny without hurting anyone’s sentiments.
John, while citing the instance of marital rape dialogue in Pati Patni Aur Woh that has upset a section of people, was asked about dealing with adult humour. Speaking with Pinkvilla, John said in an interview, “In Pagalpanti, it is a universal movie. You can target anyone, from the age of 6 to 96, there is nothing offensive in it. There is no bloodshed, the villains are cute, everything is very good and positive about the film. Subconsciously, I can’t do adult humour, so anything if it khatkos (bothers) me in a line and I feel it might be offensive as far as humour goes, I probably wouldn’t say it.”
“It depends who you are working with as well. Sometimes you work with someone where you feel trapped. You trust a director completely and then feel ‘what is this line?’ There are youngsters and newcomers, they don’t know how to say no and don’t realise it and later they feel they received flak for it. But their intent is not wrong,” Anil Kapoor added.
The socia medai is roasting the cast of Pati Patni Aur Woh after the trailer of the movie was out. The flak is about a dialogue that allegedly validates marital rape. In a scene from the trailer, Kartik complains to his friend how men are called rapists if they force their wives into having sex. “Biwi se sex maang lein toh hum bikhaari. Biwi ko sex na de toh hum atyachaari. Aur kisi tarah jugaad laga ke usse sex haasil kar lena toh balaatkari bhi hum hai. (If we ask our wives for sex then we’re called beggars, if we deny them sex then we’re called torturers, and if we coerce them into having sex with us, we’re called rapists).”
After the backlash, reports claimed that the dialogue will be edited out of the film and lead star Bhumi even apologised for the dialogue. “If we have hurt anybody’s sentiments, we are sorry, because that wasn’t the intention. But everybody who is involved in Pati Patni Aur Woh, does not belong to that school, does not belong to that thought process,” she said.
