Manmarziyaan: Anurag Kashyap, Taapsee Pannu hit out at Eros International over deleted scenes
The Manmarziyaan scenes had upset a certain section of the Sikh community and Kashyap, had on 19 September issued an apology to those who were hurt
Mumbai: Manmarziyaan has landed in fresh controversy over the deletion of three smoking-related scenes with director Anurag Kashyap expressing a strong displeasure over the move, implying that he was not consulted about the decision.
The scenes in question had upset a certain section of the Sikh community and Kashyap, who is out of the country, had on 19 September issued a "genuine" apology to those who were hurt genuinely.
The makers had apparently approached the censor board to chop off the alleged objectionable scenes from the film, starring Taapsee Pannu, Abhishek Bachchan and Vicky Kaushal.
Kashyap vented out his anger against the move on Twitter, calling out Eros International, who are the presenters of the film.
"Before my tweet is taken down - Congratulations. Here by all problems of Punjab are solved and Sikh youth have been saved . Happy to be back in LaLa land again. Next time you are threatened by a film please call Kishore Lulla directly... Eros knows how to solve matters in minutes," he tweeted.
