Thoda sa adjust kar lijiye

Vivek Agnihotri, who's directed the film Chocolate, tells the Times of India:
I don’t believe in showing steamy scenes to sensationalize a film. Even if I use a kissing scene I’ll not do it conventionally, because my sensibilities are different. There’s a scene in the film where Sushma Reddy is adjusting her breasts to accentuate her cleavage before entering a party. Then there’s a scene where she takes off her shirt in front of Anil Kapoor. That to me is more sensational than showing a lip-to-lip kiss on-screen.
Hmm. Well, here're some recent reviews and news pieces aboiut the film: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. That last link is especially funny, as it reports how the censor board got upset because the word "tequila" featured in one of the songs. Heh.
