Salman’s ‘Jai Ho’ gets U/A certificate with cuts

Salman Khan’s next release ‘Jai Ho’ directed by Sohail Khan gets a U/A certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification with several cuts for its political content and hard-hitting dialogues. Salman’s film usually passed with U certificate but this time it turned to be an exceptional with ‘Jai Ho’.

"Actually, this is quite an unusual situation for a Salman-starrer. His films are usually passed with a 'U' certificate with minimum or no cuts. But 'Jai Ho' is a political thriller about a common man's successful attempt to foil an assassination bid against a chief minister," said a source.

"There are many very hard-hitting dialogues against corruption in present-day Indian politics. This is Salman's first film with a strong political statement," added the source.

The film has no offensive language but it has some references of corrupt politicians and the current political system which the censor board had the impression that it might drew controversy from some political groups.  

"There were no abusive dialogues. Salman doesn't abuse on screen. But there are several references to current politics that could have made real-life politicians uncomfortable. These have gone. Also, some seconds from a few action scenes that were found to be lengthy," said the source.

‘Jai Ho’ marks Salman's first censor-restricted film. Starring Daisy Shah, Tabu, Sana Khan apart from Salman, the film is slated for January 24th release.
