Recently the makers of Baadshaho released the first song from the film, Mere Rashke Qamar which had glimpses of the intimate scenes that they share. But the buzz is that those scenes might just get edited out.
The sensuous song shows the sizzling love hate chemistry between Ajay and Illeana. But now we hear the makers have decided to delete all those bold scenes, all because they fear the Censor Board's reaction towards it.
A source says, "The producers think it is a smart move to take off those 'objectionable' scenes before the movie reaches the Censor Board's desk. The producers seem to get a little rattled by the way the board has dealt with movies like Udta Punjab, Lipstick Under My Burkha, Jab Harry Met Sejal, Indu Sarkar etc... They just don't to invite any controversies and would rather choose to have a smooth ride with the Censor board."
Directed by Milan Luthria the film also stars Emraan Hashmi, Esha Gupta, Vidyut Jamwal and Sanjay Mishra in the lead roles. It is set to release on September 1.
The makers have their own reasons, but it is indeed a sad trend if producers started playing safe because they don't want to invite the wrath of the Censor Board.
