Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram leela sees the lead pair, Ranveer and Deepika share an extremely long and passionate kiss. Ranveer too, in a interview has talked a lot about it. He hoped that there would be no objection to the kiss as it’s beautiful. He also hoped that the censor borad does not cut the duration of the kiss as it’s pretty long.
Now, the latest we hear is the CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) has had the makers to cut down the duration of the smooch.
A source told, “Bhansali had no choice but to comply. Else he wouldn’t have got a U/A certificate, which in turn would have cut down on the film’s reach.”
“Also Bhansali had some scenes in the film where people were shown drinking alcohol in Gujarat- a state which prohibits alcohol. Some hand gestures by Ranveer in the film were also found to be offensive and vulgar and objections were also raised against cuss words in the dialogues,” added the source.
Bhansali is not very happy with the outcome but has accepted it gracefully
When contacted, CBFC’s CEO Manish Desai said, “We had to be very careful with Ram Leela. Yes, we have made some deletions.”
