These days it seems as though the censor board has decided to toughen up on films. Just recently films like Aakrosh and Crook ran into problems with the censor board. This time it's the much talked about, Akshay Kumar-Katrina Kaif starrer Tees Maar Khan that has hit troubled waters.
It is learned that the censor board recommended certain cuts in the film to grant it a U certificate. Further, it is learnt that the word 'Sheila' was asked to be removed from the song 'Sheila Ki Jawani'. Some of the other cuts involved scenes where Katrina Kaif's naval was visible.
Apart from these, the board even asked for the phrase 'Maa Ki Aankh' to be removed, as well as some other words like tawaif, etc. were also asked to be removed. Director Farah Khan did not accept these cuts and took the film to the revising committee in Delhi.
Post the censor board ruling, Farah Khan and Shirish Kunder approached the revising committee to get the certificate for the film. Contrary to the cuts requested by the censor board, the revising committee passed the film without much debate.
The committee of seven members, who saw the film on Thursday, differed from the board finding nothing so momentous in the film to warrant 18 cuts. The film was passed with only a couple of cuts and a passing certificate will be issued to the film early next week.
