Uh oh! Ranveer Singh feared that it would happen, and it seems like it has indeed come true – his and Deepika Padukone‘s steamy kiss from Ram-Leela will be cut down by approximately 50%, according to recent reports.
Ranveer had earlier said that this is the best kiss you’ll ever see in a Bollywood film, and also commented:
“I hope that there will be no objection to the kiss because it’s a beautiful kiss. I hope they don’t cut the duration because it’s a long kiss.”
Unfortunately, the censor board has asked Sanjay Leela Bhansali to edit the duration of the kissing scene in order for his film to receive the U/A certificate. Understandably, Bhansali isn’t too happy with the outcome, but doesn’t really have a choice since he would want a U/A certificate for his film.
According to the Mirror report, there has been a total of 12 cuts total from the film. It’s a damn shame, since the best part seems to be Ranveer and Deepika’s chemistry. Hopefully, we’ll end up seeing all the cut footage as extras on YouTube post the film’s release.
