Kangana Ranaut’s Simran to have 10 cuts – Among the cuts “recommended” by the CBFC (read: either take the cuts or lose precious time going to the Tribunal) is the word ‘b*tch’, which has been ordered out in six places
After all the hue and cry over one proposed cut in Aligarh, Hansal Mehta has accepted as many as 10 cuts in his upcoming film, Simran.
Among the cuts “recommended” by the Central Board of Film Certification (read: either take the cuts or lose precious time going to the Tribunal) is the word ‘b*tch’, which has been ordered out in six places.
A source reveals, “Derogating women by gesture or language will never be permissible under any guideline, be it Pahlaj or Prasoon.” Also, out is the word bast**d. A casual reference to the Muslim community has also been censored.
However, the most interesting cuts are onomatopoeic. Loud moaning sounds during sexual intercourse have been asked to be reduced. “The sound effect made the sex scene look far more provocative than it actually was. So, it was asked to be toned down,” says a source.
Violence also gets curtailed in Simran. A scene showing a stinging slap has been told to be toned down the sound of the violent act. With a total of 10 cuts Hansal can now collect his U/A certificate for the film.
