Reports suggest that the officials of the Censor Board felt that the second trailer of The Dirty Picture was too explicit and thus not fit for theatrical or television exhibition, unless it is given an 'A' certificate. But the producers wanted U/A rating for the trailer, which would be shown with as many films as possible starting with Shahid Kapoor's Mausam.
According to reports, the Censor Board objected the lovemaking scene between Vidya Balan and Naseeruddin Shah in the car and certain abusive words in Naseeruddin's dialogue. In a bid to get U/A certificate, the bosses of The Dirty Picture have taken necessary action to cut them.
However, Balaji Motion Pictures' CEO, Tanuj Garg has admitted cutting a few scenes. Tanuj says, "The Censor Board felt that a few scenes and words in the trailer might not be appropriate for television and for people watching a U/A film in cinemas. On the other hand, we were clear that we needed a U/A. Hence, we complied with their requests."
