CBFC clears Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon starrer ‘Luka Chuppi’ with four cuts
Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon starrer ‘Luka Chuppi’ has passed the censor board test but with four cuts. The Central Board of Film Certification(CBFC) has granted a U/A-certificate to ‘Luka Chuppi’ after asking its makers to make three audio and one visual change in the original edit of their film.
As per a Hindustan Times report, the CBFC has muted the words like “k*njar” and “har**mi”. The word “chu**a” has been replaced with “kutta” and zoom in on a hand gesture for dialogue “Mujhe bhi chahiye” has been modified. The board has also asked for an additional disclaimer to be added in Hindi. After making these changes the final runtime of the film will now be of 126 minutes 9 second.
This is not the first time that Kartik’s film has faced cuts. His 2018 blockbuster ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ also had cuss words and the word ‘condom’ beeped out.
‘Luka Chuppi’ is based on a fun take on the live-in relationships. The Dinesh Vijan production and Laxman Utekar directorial is set to release tomorrow, and will clash at the box-office with Sushant Singh Rajput and Bhumi Pednekar starrer dacoit drama ‘Sonchiriya’.
On the work front, Kartik is now busy with the shoot of ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’. The film also stars Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday in pivotal roles and is slated to hit the theatres on July 9. Kriti, on the other hand, will be seen in films like ‘Housefull 4′ co-starring Akshay Kumar and ‘Arjun Patiala’ that also features Diljit Dosanjh in a pivotal role.
