Even after being a ‘U’ rated, ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ given 3-cuts by Censor Board

The censor board is surely strict while closely examining the films, featuring provocative content. Often, the censor board has to incur public anger and blames for hindering with the creativity of filmmakers. While most of the times, the board acts pragmatically while taking decisions, there are also instances when their objection seems irrelevant and unwanted. Similar case has come upfront and this time, the fallen prey for the board’s scissor has been Sooraj Barjataya. Can’t believe it? Even we can’t!!

The director, who is tagged as the purest filmmaker with no signs of hardcore violence and derogatory sequences, could not overlook the censor board without a struggle. Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor starrer film ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ has been given three cuts from the Censor Board, according to reports. The Board has regarded three scenes from the film as unnecessary and unethical.

A scene in the film uses the word “Rakhail” in its dialogue, which means a mistress. The Board has objected the usage of this word in the film and directed the maker to do necessary changes in same.  The second scene consists of a Ram-Leela sequence, which plays during the title song. The sequence then also intertwines with other old Hindi melodies. The Board said that the scene was pointless and Ram-Leela glimpse was not needed. "The scene plays out with the film's title track and was interspersed with two old songs in some portions. The Censor Board felt it was not suitable to accompany the Ram-Leela visuals. The other scene shows a person being hanged, but the examining committee wanted it to be a long shot. The makers have complied with all the suggestions," adds a source close to the project.

The third scene, where the cut was suggested, was a scene where a person is being hanged. The three cuts have come as a shock to the entire team of PRDP. Earlier too, the makers were subjected to such directions during movie editing as its duration was coming out to be too long.

The family entertainer ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ is the much-awaited film. It is hardly handful days away from its release and is already speculated to be a blockbuster.

‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ is set to release on November 12th, 2015. First time in his career, Sooraj Barjatya, the cleanest filmmaker in the industry, is asked to take three cuts in his film. We can certainly imagine the star cast of Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo being in utter distraught after hearing the same from Censor Board.
