Though Dedh Ishqiya had a butter smooth clearance from the Censor Board prior to its release, the CBFC had however asked the filmmakers to delete a scene where Arshad Warsi is seen visiting a brothel in the movie.
However, when a Censor Board member went for the screening post the release, it was noticed that the shot which was told to be cut wasn’t removed from the film. Hece the CEO of Censor Board Film Certification, Rakesh Kumar, revealed that they have issued a show cause seeking an explanation for the same. The filmmakers are defending this act saying this was a result of technical issue. Producer Raman Maru of Shemaroo stated that some theatres couldn’t blur out the 20 second scene due to bad lighting and the problem will be resolved soon.
Dedh Ishqiya stars Madhuri Dixit, Naseeruddin Shah, Huma Qureshi and Arshad Warsi.
