BAS***D Word 5 Times? No Way! Mute It, Right Now!!

The makers of Aiyaary to mute the word Bas***d that appears at 5 places in the film. Other cuts have also been suggested another cut. Who enforced this order? No prizes for guessing – the Censor Board

After a prolonged delay, Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee starrer Aiyaary will finally hit theatres on February 16. The film was first screened for the CBFC, post which the Ministry of Defence (MoD) saw the thriller. They suggested certain changes which were accommodated by the makers and the team was handed the Censor certificate on Tuesday.

Says a source, “The makers have been asked to mute the word Bas***d at 5 places. Also, a certain sequence has the phrase ‘Kargil widow’ – the word ‘Kargil’ has been removed.”

Meanwhile, Aiyaary which brings forward the corruption in the Armed Forces and has Sidharth and Manoj playing officers, was initially supposed to release on Republic Day. However, it moved from that weekend once Akshay Kumar announced that Pad Man will hit theatres on January 25.

The superstar then shifted the project to give Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat a free run (The period drama had faced several roadblocks in the form of protests by Karni Sena and releasing at the first window they got was the need of the hour). This resulted in Akshay locking horns with Aiyaary yet again. Probably, this, in turn, led Aiyaary makers to postpone the release of the thriller to February 16.

Well, like they say, all’s well that ends well.
