The Central Board of Film Certification has been accused of being on a rampant snipping spree for a while now, and the latest film to bear the brunt of its scissors is Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha. A few of Ranbir’s tongue-in-cheek dialogues have been chopped off. A risqué reference to the Interpol and a comment addressing Deepika’s character as ‘saali’ have been done away with.

Says a source, “They were fun lines—the way young people talk when in a group. At one point, a character makes a veiled reference to masturbation, which the censor board did not want. Din mein sister raat mein bistar — is one of the dialogues that did not receive a nod from the board.”

 

The source adds, “The CBFC said they were shocked at these innuendos in an ‘Imtiaz Ali’ film. But we suggested that the board members listen to how the young speak in real life.

They even said a woman can’t be referred to as ‘saali’. We want to know how the earlier censor panel passed the title Yeh Saali Zindagi or what would they say to the classic Dilip Kumar number Saala, Mein Toh Sahab Ban Gaya in the film Sagina.”

Director Luv Ranjan who had a bevy of beeps in Pyaar Ka Punchanaama 2 protests, “Since my heroes are young urban Indians and their conversation is splattered with words like ‘saala’ and ‘ch***ya’. How was I to know that the censor board doesn’t allow young people to talk the way they do ”
