Almost every movie that passes through the censor scanner is bound to face few cuts or beeps and only then the censor board comes up with its certification. While that is understood, can you imagine a single movie taking more than 200 censor cuts? Well, that seems to have happened now with one Bollywood flick.

We are talking about the movie ‘Padmavat’ and it is hitting the screens on January 25th. The entire discussion right now is about the cuts. Many are saying if that is the number of cuts then what is left in the movie, nothing much. Well, here is the answer. For instance, censor board suggested Padmavati should be changed to Padmavat.

Similarly, they asked local area names changed from historical to fictitious names so wherever the mention of these names is coming, they get cut and replaced. Of course, 200 is an exaggerated number but there are many places where changes were made. That way, the same thing getting repeated across the film has led to a huge cut count. Anyhow, here’s wishing the film the best of success.
