The wrath of the censor board is probably best known to Anurag Kashyap.

The filmmaker has had a long-standing issue with the CBFC on the anti-smoking disclaimers being shown in films, and has also spoken up on unfair cuts in films. More recently, he spoke about his disapproval of Hansal Mehta's Aligarh getting an 'A' certificate, while also tweeting about unnecessary cuts made by Hotsar to Phantom's co-production Masaan.

Keeping all this in mind, it comes as a surprise then, that Kashyap's next film, the Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Raman Raghav 2.0 has been cleared by the censor board with very minimal cuts.

According to this DNA reportRaman Raghav 2.0 has gotten an 'A' certificate with 6 cuts. A source from the board tells DNA, "Yes, Raman Raghav 2.0 is a violent film. What else can we expect a film on a serial killer to be? This is a cautionary crime story that must be seen by all adults.”

The film is based on Raman Raghav, a serial killer who operated in Mumbai in the '60s. He killed reportedly more than 40 people, and the teasers that have released of Anurag Kashyap's film are not for the faint hearted.
