BHOPAL, India (Reuters Life!) - A kissing scene from a movie starring Bollywood actors Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan has irked a lawyer who has filed a criminal case against them, accusing them of obscenity, he said on Sunday.
Shailendra Dwivedi of Indore, near Bhopal, the capital of central Madhya Pradesh state, said the scene from the movie, titled "Dhoom 2," lowered the dignity of Indian women and gave an obscene message to youth.
"Bollywood actors are conveying vulgarity in the society," Dwivedi told Reuters. "These films cannot be watched with our families, they are so vulgar at times."
A local court accepted Dwivedi's petition to punish the actors and said it would hear the petitioner on December 11.



The Indian censor board, which certifies all films, released the movie with a "parental discretion" certificate.
A majority of Indians frown upon intimacy in public.
Jeez.. I just don't know what to say... Other than thank god I dont live in that culture.

I've seen far more "vulgar" things happen in Bollywood movies. This lawyer is just being a douche bag since the two actors involved are big names in India. Also, it's a bad idea to draw conclusions for all of India based on a single story.

P.S. The US has some stringent censor laws too ;)
