Mumbai: Seems like Milan Luthria, the director of ‘Baadshaho’, doesn’t want to go through the similar fate as ‘Indu Sarkar’, ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’, and basically, every other film in India as CBFC spares no one.

We all know how stiff Central Board of Film Certification is when it comes to adult or sexual content in films, and maybe that’s why Milan Luthria himself chopped off a crucial but extremely sexual scene from Ajay Devgn starrer film ‘Baadshaho’, before the board could raise an object.

 

“The scene between Ileana and Ajay, if left as is, lasts for 10 minutes. It's aesthetically shot and is crucial to the film's plot. But Milan decided to shorten it, trimming the kisses and bareback shots. He didn't want to attract the wrath of the Censors. The film is all-out commercial and he wants it to get a U/A certificate. The scene would have resulted in an A certificate,” a source told Mid-Day.

“Milan doesn't want to face controversy ahead of release," added the source.

Set in the trying time of India’s emergency period during 1975-77, 6 burglars chalk out a plan to take advantage of the situation and set out on a mission to amass wealth from the royal establishments in Rajasthan.

 

‘Baadshaho,’ directed by Milan Luthria, produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar and Milan Luthria releases on September 1, 2017.
