The censor board of film certification viewed Raj Kumar Hirani’s Sanju last week and certified the film with no cuts except the scene showing the toilet in Dutt’s prison cell overflowing which has been ordered cut for “aesthetic reasons.”
For the rest ,the boardmembers had no objection to Dutt being portrayed more as a victim than a perpetrator.
Says a source from the censor board, “There are reports that the censorboard members objected to Mr Sanjay Dutt’s portrayal in the film ina positive light. We are not assigned to judge a film’s morality. We evaluated the film in its totality and found nothing objectionable barring fleeting shots and dialogues here and there.”
Apparently the references to Sanjay Dutt’s “308 girlfriends…not counting the prostitutes” had the censor board chuckling.It’s a free world, after all.
