Jacqueline-Sidharth’s intimate smooch in ‘A Gentleman’ chopped

The intimate smooch between Jacqueline Fernandez and Sidharth Malhotra has been chopped. The CBFC reportedly asked the makers of ‘A Gentleman’ to trim the intimate kiss between Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez by 70% to be eligible for a U/A certificate.

 “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 source said.

The source also added that film doesn't go in tune with the title, “The film is titled A Gentleman, but the hero seems to forget his manners while kissing,” they said.

Censor board Chief Pahlaj Nihalani has been removed from his post after huge controversy but while going he gave his last decree. CBFC asked the makers, the director duo Krishna DK and Raj Nidimoru to cut short the longest duration kiss.

Talking about the intimate kiss, Jacqueline and Sidharth’s lip-lock in ‘A Gentleman’ has been shot for a long duration. It even broke the longest kiss shot between Aamir Khan and Karisma Kapoor in ‘Raja Hindustani’.

‘A Gentleman’ is slated to release on August 25.
