The film Total Siyapaa is all about a love story of an
Indian girl and a Pakistani guy and hence, there were speculations
that the film will have to undergo rigorous censoring by the Censor
Board of Film Certification. However the board passed the film with
UA certificate with just changing one dialogue and removing a love
Director of the movie Total Siyapaa, E. Niwas informed
that the one line which the censor board wanted to change was "Hum
Pakistan ko lete rehte hai". "The board wanted us to beep out the
word 'lete' but we chose to change the entire line and now the
dialogue says-Hum Pakistan se ladte rehte hai", said the director.
The other suggested change was removal of a love making scene at a
work place on which Niwas said that he had no objections in making
the suggested changes.
"We expected a lot more censoring by the board but we are glad
that the board realised that we were not doing any serious stuff on
Indo-Pak relations. There is a message but it's a very light take
on the relations between the two countries. it's not a film with a
political agenda, rather it's a story of two lovers represented in
a humorous manner," said Niwas.
Having cleared the Indian Censor Board very smoothly, now
Total Siyapaa makers will hope to get the film passed in
Pakistan as well.
