Karan Johar’s stress-level at the impending release of his posh action-adventure drama Liger just went down.
Apart from the spoken words, the Central Board Of Film Certification(CBFC) has given a clean chit to the film.None of the visuals was touched , as the appreciative censor-board members sat riveted through two hours and fifteen minutes of the playing time loving every minute of the action-packed drama.
Producer Karan Johar was especially worried about the boxing matches which are the fulcrum of the plot. What if the censor found these to be too bloodied?
A source close to the CBFC says, “They loved the film and sespecially Vijay Deverakonda whose action scenes are the USP. However the censor board objected to Vijay using the “F” word repeatedly . They felt there was no need to dilute his across-the-board appeal by making him cuss so often.”
The soundtrack has been cleaned out, the ‘F’ words removed . The CBFC has given the film a ‘UA’ certificate, hence Deverakonda’s young fans can watch the film accompanied by an adult.
