Well, 11th August 2017 was a day that gave many Bollywood makers the relief they have been looking for. After all, finally the reign of sanskari CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani came to an end. The way, makers, and creatives were upset with his way of working is not an unknown fact.

In fact, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that the man has literally treated CBFC like his own territory and demanded irrational cuts based on his so-called ethics and morals. Even though Bollywood was liberated from his terror, the man did manage to use scissors one last time on none other than Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez’s film, ‘A Gentleman’.

As per media reports, Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez’s long smooch has been cut from the film, because of course, our ex-CBFC chief doesn’t approve of lovers kissing each other on screen.

Apparently, the CBFC asked the co-directors Krishna DK and Raj Nidimoru to reduce the kiss timing. “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,” revealed a source to a leading daily.

So as per our understanding, what Mr. Nihalani means to say is that a gentleman can’t kiss his beau for a long time. Just wondering: how you kiss someone decides whether you are a gentleman or not? Haha!

Back to the film, the viewers are already excited to watch the two sizzle the screen once again. ‘A Gentleman’ is slated to release on August 25, 2017.
