    Imran Khan is sharing screen space with mamu Aamir for the first time in a promo video for Delhi Belly.

Arshad Warsi has created a niche for himself in the industry by playing rustic, off-beat characters. However, he says that he misses out on using situational cuss words in his dialogues. The actor candidly admits that not everyone can make a mass film with slangs and swear words. “Only Aamir can pull off films using cuss words,” says Arshad, referring to the actor’s 2011 production Delhi Belly.

The Abhinay Deo film starring Imran Khan, Kunal Roy Kapur and Vir Das was given an ‘A’ certificate, but Arshad feels that Aamir made sure that the film didn’t lose its flavour. “The film required it and he made sure that he kept them to maintain the essence of the film,” he says.

At the same time, Arhsad also feels that a few movies force cuss words into their scripts unnecessarily. “I don’t like it when people put them in just for the effect,” says the actor, who claims there won’t be any abuses in his upcoming film Dedh Ishqia either.

“Normally, slangs are avoided to make the film clean. If the script demands it, we shoot those scenes, and then shoot a backup, in case the Censor Board objects to them. There have been times when a back-up was not shot and the whole scene had to be removed,” says Arshad who has seen this happening in some of his recent films like Zila Ghaziabad and Jolly LLB.
