Pathaan Censor Board Report gets leaked online. In a picture that went viral has brought CBFC under a lot of criticism from the people. The pic had the complete list of cuts and modifications recommended by the Central Board of Film Certification regarding the upcoming Shah Rukh Khan starrer- Pathaan.


In a picture that went viral, it can be seen that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has recommended numerous cuts, curtails and modifications in the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathaan that is slated to release on January 25th. As soon as the alleged Pathaan Censor Board Report went viral all over Social Media platforms, reactions started to pour in with people questioning that ‘How did the report went viral?’, ‘Who is behind this?’ and ‘Was this intentional?’ What amused a certain section of people was the fact that though the CBFC has recommended numerous cuts and modifications in the film, they did not suggest any cuts in the scene in which Deepika Padukone was seen wearing an orange Bikini in the steamy song- Besharam Rang.


The pic or the alleged Pathaan Censor Board Report had 12 modifications recommended by the CBFC. These included asking makers to replace the word ‘RAW’ with ‘Hamare’, recommending omitting out sensual shots and dance moves in the song Besharam Rang, revisions in some dialogues including changing the term ‘Langde Lulle’ to ‘Toote Foote’, ‘Ashok Chakra’ to ‘Veer Puraskar’, ‘ex-KGB’ with ex-SBU and ‘Mrs. Bharatmata’ with ‘Hamari Bharatmata.’


Apart from these changes, the word ‘Scotch’ has been asked to be replaced by ‘Drink’ while a text saying ‘Black Prison, Russia' has to be altered to ‘Black Prison.’ Moreover, the word ‘PM’ is to be replaced by ‘President or Minister’ and the word PMO has to be dropped from 13 scenes in the 146 minutes movie.


Talking about the controversial steamy song ‘Besharam Rang’, as per the picture that went viral, close up shots of buttocks, ‘side pose (partial nudity)' shots and visuals of sensuous dance movements during the lyrics 'Bahut tang kiya' have to be replaced with 'suitable shots'. The song created quite a buzz with Shah Rukh Khan seen flaunting his 6 pack abs and dancing with a hot-looking Deepika Padukone. However, later, the song became a topic of controversy as various sections of people demanded a ban on the song as Deepika Padukone was seen wearing an Orange Bikini which triggered people.


Home Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Dr. Narottam Mishra has even warned the filmmakers to do some alterations in the song or his government would think about whether to let Pathaan release in MP or not. 


Pathaan is slated to be released on January 25th and stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham in the lead roles. The film is directed by Siddharth Anand and is said to have been shot in 8 countries. Salman Khan is also said to have a special cameo appearance in the action-thriller.
