They have asked the makers to replace the word ‘RAW’ with ‘Hamare’, and ‘Langde Lulle’ was replaced by ‘Toote Foote’. The word ‘PMO’ was removed while in 13 places, ‘PM’ was replaced either by President or Minister.
Talking about the controversial song ‘Besharam Rang’, CBFC has asked the makers to make three changes to the Deepika Padukone starrer song, which includes the close up shot of buttocks, ‘side pose (partial nudity)’ shots and visuals of sensuous dance movements during the lyrics ‘Bahut hi tang kiya’.
Helmed by Siddharth Anand and presented by YRF, Pathaan is slated to release on January 25, a day before India’s 73rd Republic Day.
