Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Ram-Leela’ was cleared on Friday by the Censor board Of Film Certification without any verbal or visual cuts.
However, the film was passed with a ‘UA’ certificate.
All of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s earlier films ‘Khamoshi’, ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’, ‘Devdas’, ‘Saawariya’ barring ‘Guzaarish’ have been granted ‘UA’ certificates.
A source said, “Sanjay was expecting a ‘UA’ for ‘Ram-Leela’. The basic storyline is violent with a lot of gun firings. Having said that the Censor Board has been extremely liberal with the aggressive language and the violence. They understood the context and completely empathized with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s need to turn aggressive in ‘Ram-Leela’.”
Sanjay Bhansali was busy with the censoring on Friday and therefore skipped a promotional event with Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone at Mehboob studios.
“There was no big mysterious fight or tension. Sanjay was looking into the censoring of ‘Ram-Leela’. That’s why he cancelled the event at Mehboob,” says a member of the ‘Ram-Leela’ team.
