A few days back, there were reports suggesting that the Censor board officials were not ready to give a clean chit to Thiru directed Naan Sigappu Manidhan since it included a lip-lock scene between the lead pair Vishal and Lakshmi Menon.
The makers apparently refused to remove the lip-lock scene since it is considered crucial for the film and the board has given a ‘U/A’ certificate. Now the producers of the film Vishal Film Factory and UTV Motion pictures who are releasing the film have sent it for the revising committee to reconsider the rating.
Vishal? NSM in romance nor vulgarity Neither>
Meanwhile a press meet was organized in Chennai in which Dhananjayan, the South Head of UTV along with Vishal and Lakshmi Menon took part. The press persons started asking about the much hyped lip-loc scene to which Vishal replied that the film includes some underwater sequences as well as a lip-lock between himself and Lakshmi Menon.
Vishal was quick to add that the lip-lock will not be like a ‘Bond’ style ‘French kiss.’ There won’t be any vulgarity or romance in the lip-lock.
Lakshmi Menon who came late to the press meet owing to shooting schedules apologized for the delay. On expected lines, she had to face a question about the lip-lock.
The ‘Pandiyanadu’ actress replied that she accepted for the scene only because the script demanded it and she will not hesitate to do it in future if she is convinced of the reason.
Naan Sigappu Manidhan is gearing up for a grand release on April 11 as the solo Tamil New Year treat in Kollywood.
