1. Yamuna starts working as a nude model

The uncensored version of Ravi Jadhav’s Nude has been re-released on ZEE5. Owing to its bold content, the film was released in theatres in 2018 with several cuts. Now, viewers can enjoy the uncensored version, exclusively on ZEE5. The film starring Kalyanee Mulay (Yamuna) and Chhaya Kadam (Chandrakka), tells the story of Yamuna, who leaves behind her abusive husband and travels to Mumbai.

Watch the film here.

In order to fund her son’s education, she starts working as a nude model in an arts college. Nude deals with the stigma attached to this profession and the hypocrisy and patriarchy with which this society functions. We list five scenes from the film that you didn’t get to see in the censored version, starting with this one where Yamuna starts working as a nude model. She sheds all her clothes and this scene depicts her in full nudity, which you didn’t get to see in the theatrical release.

2. Yamuna and Chandrakka pose together

In the censored version, you saw only the upper part of Yamuna and Chandrakka bodies, as they pose together for their work. In the international cut, you can see their entire form as they pose as nude models during an art class.

3. Yamuna bares it all

This scene was completely cut from the version that you saw in theatres. You can see Yamuna baring it all, as students paint her on their canvases.

4. Yamuna goes through a book on arts

In order to feel more confident with her own body, Yamuna sits naked at home. She starts going through an arts book that one of her students leaves behind for her and comes across some gorgeous portraits of women, painted by various artistes.

5. Yamuna poses as goddess Saraswati

This was another scene completely censored from the original version, owing to its controversial content. Kalyanee shares this scene with Naseerduddin Shah, who plays an arts professor Mallik Sahab in the film. His character is a tribute to the late legendary painter M.F Hussain. This scene highlights controversy that Hussain had courted by painting Hindu goddesses in the nude. Here, Yamuna poses as goddess Saraswati as Mallik Sahab paints her. He presents his own point of view in doing the same.
