Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt’s ‘Gully Boy’ in censor trouble; major cuts suggested
Bollywood actors Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Gully Boy’ has been in the limelight for a while. Right from the posters to trailers to songs, the film has created a lot of buzz. The rap bonanza has gripped the entire nation. Also, the fever of ‘Gully Boy’ has gone international. The film will hit the screens on 14th February 2019. Unfortunately, the censor board has not spared this family entertainer and demanded major cuts.
According to a report published in Latestly, one of the most significant kissing scene featuring Ranveer and Alia, has suffered at the last minute. However, the board feels that the much-talked-about kiss is too passionate to handle. The cuss words have also been euphemised to softer terms.
The censor board did not stop here as the mention of a popular whiskey brand has also been removed from the movie, despite them being one of the partners in the film. The censor board has also instructed makers to add a disclaimer in Devanagari. The film reportedly received its censor certificate on Friday. But, the last hour cuts are definitely going to irk viewers.
Take a look at the censor board’s report:
‘Gully Boy’ is produced by Excel Entertainment co-founders Riteish Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar. It is helmed by Zoya Akhtar. ‘Gully Boy’ would also see Kalki Koechlin and vijay raaz in a pivotal role. The film is loosely based on the lives of Mumbai’s underground rappers Vivian Fernandes aka Divine and Naved Shaikh aka Naezy.
