Pahlaj Nihalani has finally been replaced as the CBFC chief after the constant criticism he received for his efforts to make movies more “sanskari. As a last duty he executed, Mr. Nihalani has chopped a certain kissing scene from Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez‘s A Gentleman.

According to a report in BL, the kiss was apparently too long. CBFC reportedly asked the film’s co-directors Krishna DK and Raj Nidimoru to curtail the lead pair’s long smooch. The report also quoted a source saying that:

The lead pair’s kiss just went on and on unnecessarily, just like the smooch in the James Bond film and Ranbir Kapoor-Anushka Sharma in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. We’ve asked them to take it easy. The film is titled A Gentleman, but the hero seems to forget his manners while kissing.

Umm. Okay!

Jacqueline Fernandez

The report ordered the kiss to be edited by nearly 70% and also asked the makers to remove an English language expletive before granting the film a U/A certificate. Moreover, the pole dance sequence for which Jacqueline worked pretty hard was also half omitted to obtain a U/A certificate.

Looks like he made the last cut before finally leaving. For good.
