Reference to Pakistan chopped off from Bajrangi Bhaijaan
Bajrangi Bhaijaan opened in Pakistan on July 17, along with three local films: Bin Roye , Aansoo and Wrong Number . According to exhibitor, Amjad Rasheed, all films are running to packed houses due to Eid. However, the film had to chop out quite a few sequences in order to be shown across the border. The Central Board of Film Censors (Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi) raised objections to a scene depicting an attack on the Pakistani embassy. The scene has been excised even though there's a reference to it later in the film, when Pavan's 'story' is being checked. And along with it, all shots of soldiers of the Pakistani army shown on the border while people are crossing over, have also been axed. The censors also wanted to mute the chant of 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan.' According to the certificate issued by the CBFC in Pakistan, the "entire sequence from `Bajrangi Bhaijaan' onwards (should be) excised." There are dialogue cuts as well, including " Pakistani bohot martey hain " and " Woh Pakistani is ka kya haal karengey ." Another interesting deletion is the line, " Kashmir ka chota sa hisa hamrey pass bhi hai. " Obviously, Kashmir is not just a contentious issue at global summits and news hour debates. Even a passing reference to the state in a Bollywood entertainer will not pass muster.
