Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan’s soon-to-release Love Aaj Kal has been granted a U/A certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). However, the makers have apparently paid a heavy price for it.
We are all waiting for the release of Imtiaz Ali’s film Love Aaj Kal, set to hit theatres on 14 February. A lot is being talked about the on-screen chemistry of Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan. However like most films, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has decided to do away with certain scenes in this film too.
If a recent report in an entertainment portal is anything to go by, the Board has axed most of the intimate scenes between the lead pair. The kissing scene at the very beginning of the film has been reduced to a mere flash. The lovemaking scene that follows has been curtailed. If that was not enough, the makers have also been ordered to blur the visuals of cleavage shown after the intimate scene.
The report adds that in another scene, the Board objected to shots of the lead actors undressing and thus, asked the makers to do away with them. Besides that, audio censoring has also been done. A sexually abusive word was asked to be replaced with a less objectionable term, ‘a**.’ While the ‘f’ words have been muted wherever they are heard, a Hindi abuse ‘Haraamzaadon’ has been replaced with ‘Saale besharmon.’
