Sorry, ladies. I regret to inform you that after great discussion, the censor board has decided to cut Ranbir’s nude scene that would see him exposing his bottom. Rumour had it that Ranbir would be taking after his father (who bared his bum in Bobby) during the song ‘Jab Se Tere Naina’ where he would do a nude shot from behind. Apparently, keeping this scene intact would mean that the film would get a U/A rating. This would mean that a large fraction of viewers would be lost.
Naturally, director Bhansali wouldn’t want to sacrifice even one viewer, so it was decided that the shot would be cut in order to achieve a clean U rating. He confirms to Mumbai Mirror, “in fact, several members of the censor board who loved the film suggested I take the cut and go with the ‘U’ certificate. Though in principle I’m against any cuts, this one time I agreed. The shot doesn’t really make any difference to the flow of my story.”
I guess your imaginations will have to do all the work, ladies!
