Savita bhabhi's character shown in first episode

Savita Bhabhi is an Indian pornographic cartoon character, a housewife. Her promiscuous behaviour is justified by her being ignored by her husband (Ashok). The title bhabhi (sister-in-law) is respectfully attached to first names of North Indian housewives. The character was promoted through a comic strip medium by anonymous people active in India. It has since been converted into a subscription-based strip owned by kirtu.com.

History[edit]

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.[1][2]

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.

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.[3]

Production of Pornography is broadly illegal in India.[4] 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.[5] 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.[6]

Initially the creators of the site chose to remain anonymous, going under the assumed collective name Indian Porn Empire.[7] 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.[8]

The presence of a character bearing a resemblance to Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan also met with criticism on Indian television channels.[9]
