Shah Rukh Khan, Nayanthara & Vijay Sethupathi’s much-awaited action film Jawan, helmed by Atlee has been passed by the censor board with a U/A certificate. The film which boasts of being the first Indian to have the action scenes done by 6 epic stunt directors who have previously worked on Avengers and Star Trek is releasing on September 7.
However, the makers were asked to make seven changes in the film. The visuals of suicide were asked to be suitably reduced. The violent visuals of the beheaded body were asked to be removed. An ‘out of context’ reference of the Honourable President of India was suitably modified and was replaced with the term ‘Head Of State’.
This was done at another place where the dialogue was replaced with ‘Bravery medal’. Then the words ‘Paida hoke’ were removed in the ‘Tab tak beta vote daalne…’ dialogue. Then, ‘Ungli karna’ was replaced with ‘Usse use karo’ and the word ‘Sampraday’ was added to the ‘Ghar, paisa…ki buniyaad par’ dialogue. A dialogue at 1 hour 39 minutes was modified to ‘because foreign language hai’ and ‘expert trainers from my company…mere kharche pe’.
Lastly, the ‘irrelevant references’ to NSG (National Security Guard) were removed. NSG, in fact, has been modified to IISG in Jawan. The length of the film, as mentioned on the censor certificate, is 169 minutes. In other words, Jawan is 2 hours and 49 minutes long. The film releases on September 7, 2023.
While it is rumoured that the trailer of the film might drop on August 28, the final print has already passed the censor screening.
