‘Zanjeer’ to have 52 cuts as per the Censor Board

Apoorva Lakhia’s film Zanjeer has got a mixed response from the Censor Board. While its Hindi version has got a ‘UA’ certificate, its Telugu version has got an ‘A’ certificate even though both versions are almost similar. This is to say that the same film with near-identical material is suited for viewers comprising children and parents in Hindi but only suited for adults in Telugu.

Says a source, “We have nearly the same content in both the Telugu and Hindi. The scenes are occasionally shifted around but the content is essentially the same, except for an additional song. Yet the censor board wanted 52 cuts in Telugu if it was to be granted a ‘UA’ certificate.”

The cuts demanded in the Telugu version of Zanjeer (called Toofan).
