Baadshaho: Director Milan Luthria trims love making scene between Ajay Devgn, Ileana D'Cruz

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) or more colloquially called the 'censor board' has always been known for being a bit too prudish when it comes to sexual or adult content in cinema. Often, filmmakers have faced trouble with getting certification for their films; more frequently ever since Pahlaj Nihalani took office.

Director Milan Luthria, whose upcoming Baadshaho is slated to release this year, took a prudent step and chopped off scenes from the film which he thought wouldn't go well with CBFC, reports Mid-day.

Baadshaho is set in the early 1970s which was the time when the then-Prime Minister Indira Gandhi snatched away the assets of royal families across the country. It is an out-and-out commercial action thriller starring Ajay Devgn, Ileana D'Cruz, Emraan Hashmi, Vidyut Jamwal, Esha Gupta and Sanjay Mishra.

The film reportedly has a 10-minute-long love making sequence which features Devgn and D'Cruz. According to the Mid-day report, although the scene was "aesthetically shot", Luthria didn't want to take any chances. He apparently cut some portions of the scene which included kissing and bareback. The report further states that Luthria wants to get a U/A certificate for the film, which wouldn't have been possible if the scene was kept intact.

Of late, Madhur Bhandarkar's upcoming Indu Sarkar which is also based around the Emergency period has faced a lot of problems - both in release and promotion. The film is caught between a tussle which has Congress party at one end and CBFC on the other. Luthria, according to the Mid-day report, doesn't want his film to mire in unnecessary controversies before release.

Baadshaho is slated to release on 1 September 2017.
