Bollywood is not new for controversies or controversial titles. Now a movie made on life of Bhanvari Devi is titled 'B..ch'. Confidently it is going to attract the ire of the censor board. Nikhil Tonk who is the producer for the film has registered this name as the title for the film. He is on the verge of finalizing actor for the movie. The name is sure to create as much controversy as the life of the nurse who allegedly blackmailed Rajasthan politicians over their sexual misbehavior.

Film makers had meetings with Kangna Ranaut, Mallika Sherawat and Bipasha Basu for the role, though Bipasha and Kangana's reps have denied being approached for the film. tells Tonk, "The title is not a judgement on Bhanwari Devi's character, but merely a reflection on how society perceived her. We've got the title registered with the producers' association, and I don't think we'll face any trouble. We want to start shooting next month."

Though Nikhil Tonk is claiming the tile is cleared by Censor Board, Censor Board CEO Pankaja Thakur stresses that no title can get clearance before the movie is submitted for certification. "Once the film is submitted for certification, we judge the title for its appropriateness. We recently received a film with the word "balls" in the title. When we reviewed the movie, we found that it had nothing to do with what we were assuming, so we cleared it. But in this case, if the title is B**ch - and we all know it can mean nothing else - it'll probably not get clearance. However, we'll wait for the movie to come to us.

In most cases, we look at the appropriateness of cuss words used. Bollywood has got notorious reputation of making films titled Kaminey Yeh Saali Zindagi Lafangey Parindey 3 Idiots Marega Saala Rascals Ghanchakkar Gandu.
