Mumbai | Ajay Devgan and Milan Luthria have dismissed reports that the latter has chopped off an intimate scene from their upcoming film “Baadshaho” to avoid the wrath of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
There were reports that the “Baadshaho” director, Luthria, had deleted an intimate sequence between Devgn and the film’s female lead Ileana D’Cruz before the board could raise any object.
However, Devgan said, “It’s not true. We have not made a porn film.”
While Luthria added, “This is complete conjecture. I don’t think anybody besides my core team is privy to what and how we edit the film. This is speculation. It’s a straightforward film.”
Luthria’s directorial project is set during the Emergency period. Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar’s recent released “Indu Sarkar” had too covered the same topic but faced a lot of hurdles while getting clearance from the CBFC.
When asked on the same, Luthria said, “Nothing has happened so far and I don’t think anything will happen also.
“We have seen films being made in similar genre earlier as well. That film had a political approach and ours is action adventure.”
Devgan said, “As a director-producer I have not faced any problem. I don’t know what is the problem, I don’t see a problem. If you rationalise it then everything could be understood.”
The film also features Emraan Hashmi, Esha Gupta and Sanjay Mishra and is scheduled to release on September 1.
