Ahead of its release, ‘Pathaan’ has seen a whole lot of controversy. Apart from the saffron bikini donned by Deepika Padukone, the movie has also faced a whole lot of cuts suggested by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
In more than 10 cuts suggested by the censor board, Deepika Padukone’s close up shots of buttocks, ‘side pose (partial nudity)’ shots have been chopped off from ‘Besharam Rang’, moreover, her sensuous dance moves in the lyrics ‘Bahut tang kiya’ have been censored and replaced with ‘suitable shots’. The CBFC also asked for several dialogue changes too.Commenting on the same, Prasoon Joshi, Chairperson, CBFC, said, “Just to put all queries around the film Pathaan at rest, the film recently reached the CBFC examination committee for certification. The film went through the due examining process as per the CBFC guidelines. The committee has guided the makers to implement the advised changes in the film including the songs and submit the revised version prior to theatrical release. The CBFC is always committed to finding the right balance between creative expression and sensibility of the audience and believes that we can always find a solution through meaningful dialogue between all stakeholders. Whilst the process is getting duly followed and implemented, I must reiterate that our culture and faith is glorious, intricate and nuanced. And we have to be careful that it does not get defined by trivia which takes the focus away from the real and the true. And like I have said earlier as well, that the trust between creators and audience is most important to protect and the creators should keep working towards it.”
Helmed by Siddharth Anand, ‘Pathaan’ is slated to hit the big screen on January 25.
