In this year of lean and mean boxoffice business, it looks  like producer Sajid Nadiadwala and director David Dhawan’s Judwaa 2 is determined to   crack the boxoffice code.

In what could be considered a novel polishing-up act the makers of  Judwaa 2 have gone back to the censor board with voluntary cuts.

No, nothing that the censor board wanted out. But cuts that producer Sajid Nadiadwala and director David Dhawanthought would further tighten the pace  of  their supersonic-speeded comedy.

Says a  well-informed source, “Judwaa 2  went to the  Censor Board twice. The first time, the censor board ordered 6  cuts including shots of Varun Dhawan playing the saxophone in the guise of Lord Krishna, a crotch-grabbing shot, shots of liquor bottles  and random risqué words.  But then the Judwaa team returned to the CBFC  with voluntary cuts  as they wanted to  make the film slicker.”

CBFC rules stipulate that any change after censor certification must be brought to the CBFC’s notice as the certification becomes invalid if even a frame is removed or added.

Says a source, “The Judwaa team went back to the CBFC with random cuts which they made to ensure a watertight narration. The  film is now 2 hours and 27 minutes long.”
