Airport shows adult film on terminal TVs

From USAToday.com:

Imagine the surprise on passengers' faces at India's Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi when an adult film was broadcast on all of the airport's television sets. The incident prompted numerous complaints, and the film was stopped after 20 minutes, according to the
Indo-Asian News Service. Airport officials claimed the film was shown as part of an AIDS awareness program, though it's unclear exactly how an adult movie fit into the program. Some sources say the blunder could come from airport workers viewing the film, thinking they were watching it secretly — but accidentally broadcasting it to the airport TVs from the facility's control room. "We don't allow any such things (adult films) to come even near our office," said airport official Mandeep Lal. British news service Ananova says the incident came at midnight, when the airport was packed with passengers catching international flights. Posted at 6:45 a.m.

I had heard/read somewhere that on Indian television, kissing is considered to be taboo. I can only imagine how the people at the airport reacted.
