“Wazir” could have featured “sensuous and passionate” lovemaking scenes between actors Farhan Akhtar and Aditi Rao Hydari, but the film’s makers chose to cut them out to avoid “conflict” with the Censor Board.
“As part of the film, the duo shot for some very hot and steamy love-making scenes. Whoever had seen the outcome of it felt that they were extremely sensuous and passionate,” a source said, adding that the reason for these cuts was “the expected censor board issues”.
In an earlier screening, there was a long discussion on the scenes and producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra did not want any conflicts with the censor board for the film.
And understandably so, since the censor board has been either snipping or shortening kissing scenes from films like “Spectre” and “Chauranga”.
