CBFC Gives ‘Raees’ U/A Certificate, Gets Six Verbal Cuts


Mumbai: ‘Raees’ is mainly based on the life of a gangster-turned-politician Abdul Latif. Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has given the film a U/A certificate with six verbal cuts only. There are no visual cuts. The verbal cuts in the film are not abuses.

Shah Rukh plays the role of a gang lord but doesn’t utter a single expletive. The board members praised Shah Rukh for keeping the dialogues clean even while acting out his business.

The verbal cuts had to do with the dialogues which cast aspersions on real-life characters. Producer Ritesh Sidhwani and other followers of the movie were apparently happy with censor board’s decision.
