Yes, you heard it right! Censor Board, headed by Pahlaj Nihalani, a self-declared admirer of Prime Minister Modi, has decreed that the new Bond movie Spectre will have shorter kissing scenes.

Rediff.com report quotes a insider who says the Central Board of Film Certification has no problem with kisses. "But the length of the kisses were found to be excessive," the source added.

The Daniel Craig-starrer is releasing this Friday in India, with a U/A certificate. That is after it received two visual cuts and two of the verbal variety.

Not surprisingly, Twitter had a field day with the news, making #CensorBoard and #SanskariJamesBond trend. Check out some of their reactions here:
