Salman Khan's 'Bharat' gets 24 cuts despite CBFC clearance. Read why?
New Delhi : A couple of days before the official release of Salman Khan's upcoming movie 'Bharat', the makers have given 24 cuts to the final version. A media report said that the film has been given a cut to make it crispier and tighter.
The makers took this decision after a special screening for friends and family. The report suggests that Salman’s father and writer Salim Khan told Ali to bring down the duration of the film.
Ali Abbas Zafar then sat with his actor to chop off some scenes. As revealed by Mid-day, 24 cuts have been made in the final film that include a few portions of songs Aithey Aa and Turpeya.
The report also mentioned that a few scene of Salman Khan and his on-screen friend Sunil Grover have been removed from the movie. The daily quoted a trade source saying that Bharat was set as a three-hour long film initially.
Interestingly, the decision by the makers was taken after getting clearance from the CBFC.
Starring Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and Sunil Grover in the pivotal roles, 'Bharat' has been scheduled to release in theatres on June 5.
