Savita bhabhi's character shown in first episode.

Savita Bhabhi is an Indian pornographic cartoon character and has earned a recognition[1] as India's first porn star. The character named Savita is depicted as an attractive promiscuous housewife who is ignored by her husband (Ashok) and engages in sexual adventures. The suffix bhabhi ([[]]: sister-in-law) is commonly attached to first names of Indian housewives. The character initially appeared in a freely available comic strip at savitabhabhi.com. It has since been converted into a subscription-based strip owned by kirtu.com.

History[edit]

The cartoon character was first[2] introduced by Deshmukh in March 2008.[1] It proved controversial in the conservative Indian setting as soon as it was introduced. Some critics felt it represented the face of new India's ultra-liberal section.[3][4]

The Savita Bhabhi Movie was released on May 2013; it deals with the subject of internet censorship in a humorous way with Savita Bhabhi as the heroine who saves the day.[5]

Controversies[edit]

"Wow, India has now joined the elite club of China, Iran, North Korea and suchlike in the area of Internet censorship."

Graphic novelist Sarnath Banerjee on the ban of Savita Bhabhi.[6]

Pornography is illegal in India.[7] As a result the original website was censored by the Indian government under its anti-pornography laws. This was met with criticism from the likes of prominent Indian libertarian bloggers and journalist Amit Varma.[8] Eventually the mainstream media columnists joined in criticizing the ban as reflecting a "meddlesome, patriarchal mindset" of a "Net Nanny" government. This resulted in an online movement to save the character from being destroyed.[9]

Initially the creators of the site chose to remain anonymous, going under the assumed collective name Indian Porn Empire.[10] However in 2009, the creator of the site Puneet Agarwal, a second generation Indian living in the UK revealed his identity in an attempt to fight against the ban. However a month later, due to family pressure he announced his decision to take down the comic strip.[2]

The presence of a character bearing a resemblance to Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan also met with criticism on Indian television channels.[11]

Influences[edit]

  • The producers of the upcoming comedy Bollywood film titled Sheetal Bhabhi have claimed that it draws inspiration from Savita Bhabhi.[1]
  • The filmmaker Ram Gopal Verma is reported to be making a cinema movie bringing Savita Bhabhi's character to celluloid.[12]
  • Savita Bhabhi, a Movie is released in May 2013.[13]
  • My Sexy Savita, a dedicated website launched by Yellowplum Limited bringing animated cartoon porn character to reality.

Savita Bhabhi - The Movie[edit]

UK-based businessman Puneet Agarwal has tried to bring back the Savita Bhabhi in the form of an animated movie titled Savita Bhabhi Movie [14]
