Kangana Ranaut starrer Simran to have as many as 10 cuts by Central Board of Film Certification. The cuts that have been recommended by the CBFC include words like ‘b*tch’, which has been ordered out in six places, and also b*st*rd.
A source has revealed, “Derogating women by gesture or language will never be permissible under any guideline, be it Pahlaj or Prasoon.” The word b*st*rd is also been censored for using it as a casual reference to the Muslim community.
Not only words but 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 is also being cut down in the film. Even a scene showing a stinging slap has been told to be toned down.
With a total of 10 cuts, Hansal can now collect U/A certificate for his film.
