One of the most explosive lovemaking scenes ever shot for a Hindi film is now available at the click of a mouse button. Shah Rukh Khan and Deepa Sahi’s steamy lovemaking scene from Maya Memsaab is all over the Internet.
When the film released in 1993, the explicit scenes were censored keeping in mind the viewer’s sensibilities. All that was left were a few scenes which suggested that Lalit (SRK) and Maya (Deepa) had slept together. But the recently released scenes on the Internet have left nothing to one’s imagination.
Our well-placed source from the industry informed, “The entire sex sequence which was shot between Shah Rukh Khan and Deepa Sahi in Maya Memsaab is on the Internet. It happened on Friday. It is really inexplicable how the previously censored scene has come out fully uncensored on the Internet. Film mein itna sab kuch nahin tha.”
When contacted, Deepa Sahi said that she was not aware that the intimate scenes between her and Shah Rukh Khan that were canned by her director husband Ketan Mehta for Maya Memsaab had leaked out. “I am not aware of this. Nobody has told me about this as yet. I think somebody must have downloaded it from the DVD and put it on the Internet,” said Deepa.
However, Deepa Sahi also added that no part of the scene had been censored before the release.
She said, “The Censor Board had objected to the scene but then the Revised Committee reviewed it again and we got it to the theatres without any cuts.”
But when we told her that we had seen the film when it released and the video on the Internet was far more explicit, Deepa said, “I don’t know. I am not going to go on the Internet to checkout.”
Ketan Mehta agreed with Deepa’s point and said that it’s not possible that the Internet scene has more to it than the film. According to him, there were no censor cuts and no scenes were added later.
So, how did the sex scene come out after 15 years? According to Deepa, she is not aware how the sex scene in question went into circulation. However, she also said that she was not surprised that this had happened. Deepa added, “If the scene is there in the film, it is likely that such a thing will come on the Internet. I don’t know why there is so much brouhaha about this. I think India was far more liberal in thinking 50 years ago. We seem to have become more regressive over the years. I remember the Revised Committee saying that the scene was very poetic.”
We wondered if Shah Rukh Khan was upset over the leaked scene on the Internet. So, we asked Deepa if SRK has called her. Deepa said, “No. Shah Rukh Khan hasn’t called me.”
Despite us sending a text message to Shah Rukh Khan, he remained unavailable for comment.
An explicit video, uploaded on YouTube on February 27, has the internet abuzz – it shows a youthful Shah Rukh Khan in a delightful and passionate romp with Deepa Sahi in a scene from the film Maya (1993).
Since the original film did not carry the explicit scene, there has been speculation that deleted footage from the film was deliberately leaked by someone, possibly to embarrass the stars.
We decided to investigate and spoke with Linda from Germany who posted the video.
The video is “an extract from a VHS (UK format) called Maya: The Enchanting Illusion. That is the European title for Maya Memsaab” says Linda.
How did you acquire it?
“I stumbled across the VHS at Ebay. A British seller was offering it for a few pounds. I remembered that I had heard in some Internet forums that there exists a European version of Maya Memsaab, which contains a more detailed love scene between Deepa Sahi and Shahukh Khan than the Indian version. But there seemed to be nobody who had seen it or knew where one can get it.
‘I got curious if this VHS was maybe the uncensored version and so I decided to buy it. A week later I knew that I was right,” she said
What prompted you to post it?
I did not post the bed scene on the internet with the intention to harm Shahrukh Khan or Deepa Sahi, as some people accuse me of now. I would never do that because I admire and respect both of them. SRK is my favorite actor.
I posted the scene because I thought that many fans would be interested in it. I just had not considered that there could be people out there who would start making a big fuss out of it.
Really, I don’t see anything wrong in the video. It’s a fine scene. I’m surprised and sorry about the scandalized reaction of the public. That’s not my purpose.
Maya Memsaab is a well done movie. I think people should watch it before they pass judgement on it.
We entirely agree with Linda, and are convinced there is no conspiracy here, just a video to be viewed and enjoyed, but only if you are an adult!
