The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), on Wednesday, asked the makers to "delete the visuals where heroine holds alcohol bottle and replaced with heroine holding flowers bouquet" in the song Vaddi Sharaban. This was one of the three cuts that the board asked the film to make before giving it a U/A certificate.
At the film's press conference in Delhi when the lead cast was asked if the Board was being"too sanskari", the film's lead actor Ajay Devgn reasoned that it has to be edited because the brand of alcohol cannot be shown, "Let's not get into this... maybe the rule says you can't show the brand of the alcohol."
The reporter then pointed out that the brand of the alcohol was not visible from the song's visuals. Ajay in reply said, "We don't know what they (CBFC) have done. I really think, how can they replace the bottle?"
Rakul Preet who starred alongside Ajay and Tabu, who was also present during the media interaction, added, "We are not aware of that, because we have been really busy promoting the movie. We'll only find out after watching the movie."
The second deletion happened with a dialogue in the movie that goes "performance better hoti hai" along with the visual has been cut.
The third and the final cut was to delete the dialogue -- "Manju ji ke aalu O ho ho... wahi ache hain..." and "ki yeh sab jhoot hain" -- and it's corresponding visuals.
Directed by debutant Akiv Ali, the film also features Tabu, Jaaved Jaaferi, Jimmy Shergill and Alok Nath in pivotal roles.
Tabu earlier revealing about the plot of the film said it explores various facets of a relationship and is not a story where two women are vying for the love of a man.
The film revolves around a 50-year-old single father (Ajay) who faces disapproval from his family and ex-wife when he falls in love with a 26-year-old woman, played by Rakul. Tabu stars as the Ajay's character's former wife.
