Nikhil Advani`s `D-Day` censored, gets U/A certificate
Mumbai: Director Nikhil Advani`s ‘D Day’, a film on cross-border terrorism, was passed by the Central Board Of Film Certification with a few dialogue cuts and an `UA` certificate. Surprisingly, no cuts were ordered in verbal content regarding Pakistan, but Shruti Haasan`s dialogues have been cut short.
In the film, a bunch of RAW agents is assigned to bring a terrorist back to India from Pakistan.
"I expected some objection to what could be considered inflammatory dialogues about Pakistan. But the censor board has not touched a single word pertaining to Pakistan," said Advani.
What has gone are a few dialogues by Shruti, who plays a Pakistani prostitute.
"These are lines where she does hardcore business bargaining with her clients. I was advised to get rid of these dialogues to obtain a `UA` certificate. I happily took them off. My apprehensions were not about what Shruti`s character has to say, but about the far more important dialogues on cross-border terrorism. I am happy to say the censor board didn`t touch any of those," said Advani.
The film also starring Rishi Kapoor, Irrfan, Arjun Rampal, and Huma Qureshi is coming out July 19.
