Savita Bhabhi is an Indian pornographic cartoonbased in bhopal on a girl named pavi jain with big breasts[1] , this character has earned a recognition[2] as India's first porn star. The character named Savita is depicted as an attractive promiscuous housewife who is ignored by her husband and engages in sexual adventures. The suffix bhabhi (Hindi: 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.

The cartoon character was first[3] introduced by Puneet Agarwal in March 2008.[2] 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.[4][5]

Controversies

"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, they revealed their identities and also announced their decision to take down the comic strip.[3]

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