Central Board of Film Certification is not lenient with Baaghi 3. The board has shown an issue to Shraddha Kapoor’s dialogue in the film. Well, Shraddha’s character has the habit of spewing abuses a lot, however, she says half of it and then finishes it with the word ‘beep’. But CBFC doesn’t like it, and they are certainly don’t want to tolerate it.
A daily quoted a source as saying, “Shraddha Kapoor’s character in Baaghi 3 has the habit of spewing abuses at every given opportunity. But she just says half of it and then finishes it with the word ‘beep’. The trailer gives a hint of this wherein the actress can be seen mentioning ‘Maa ki lo beep’ and ‘maacho beep’. There are many more such terms she mentions like ‘maadar beep’, ‘behancho beep’, ‘gaa beep’, ‘bho beep’, ‘maa ka bho beep’, ‘maa ke bhu beep’, ‘teri maa ki beep’ etc. Then at some places, certain words are used by her which sound similar to cuss words like ‘bhospuriye’, ‘muthmaare’, ‘chudasma’ etc. The CBFC categorically told the makers that such words can’t be tolerated in a film meant for kids and families and told them to replace them with non-sexually abusive words. Even ‘Haramzaade’ uttered in one place was changed.”
While Baaghi 3 has U/A certificate, there were some visuals and other dialogues on which the CBFC showed their concern.
The source continues, “There’s a sequence of a child being beaten. It was modified and a disclaimer added in the beginning denouncing violence against children. The visuals of a body getting burnt were reduced by 50%. An abusive word used against a deaf character was found insulting and was replaced. Moreover, there were close-up shots of Disha Patani’s body in the song ‘Do You Love Me’ which seemed a bit too much for the CBFC. These visuals were replaced with long shots and visuals of other characters.”
The film also stars Tiger Shroff, Riteish Deshmukh, Ankita Lokhande, Jaideep Ahlawat and Vijay Varma. Directed by Ahmed Khan, Baaghi 3 releases on March 6.
