Radhe, starring Salman Khan, Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda and Gautam Gulati opened to poor reviews and poor Box office numbers despite being an Eid release. The film also has the lowest rating on IMDb among all Salman starrers.
The film’s duration was just 109 minutes, that is, 1 hours 49 minutes compared to most films which are more than 2 hours. We have learnt that to make it possible, the makers had to cut down a lot of scenes. They have released few of those stills, indicating the scenes that were removed from the film.

A source says, “There was a track of Salman Khan and that of his parents and sister, played by Virendra Saxena, Zarina Wahab and Nancy Jain. The whole chunk was removed by the makers. It was a nice track but the producers, including Salman Khan, took the tough call with a heavy heart of chopping it off from the final cut to reduce the film’s length.”
One still indicates that Nancy Jain, who plays Radhe’s sister, comes face to face with the villains of the film – Randeep Hooda, Gautam Gulati and Sangay Tsheltrim – in an empty local train. The source says, “Even Salman was a part of it and this was an additional confrontation that he had with the antagonists in the movie. It served as a nice homage to a similar scene in the local train in Wanted (2009). However, since the other scenes of the family were removed, even this sequence was left out from the final cut.”
