The CBFC has handed Nawazuddin Siqqidue’s upcoming release Babumoshai Bandookbaaz with 48 cuts before allowing it to release. The number of cuts has come as a shock to the film-makers and the actors.
Speaking about the same to an entertainment portal, Nawaz said, “Abhi mujhe kya hai na ki mujhe director se poochna padega ki 48 cuts hai na toh mere liye bhi zyada wo hai… kyuki humlog expect karrahe the ki A certificate agar mil hi raha hai toh usmein.. uske bawajood bhi 48 cuts hai toh I don’t know. I will talk to my director. Abhi just pata he chala hai mujhe toh. But it’s like picture he khatam hojayegi poori… picture kahan se bachegi?”
The actor was not pleased with the decision, adding, “Haan of course thoda afsos toh ho he raha hai. Dekhte hai, baat karni padegi mujhe ki kya hai.”
We hope the film gets released with minimal cuts and the audience gets to see Nawaz in yet another iconic role.
