Superstar Salman Khan's young fans, who form a sizeable slice of his mammoth fan-following, may need to be accompanied by adults to be able to see his latest film Jai Ho.

The film has been reportedly passed by the Central Board of Film Certification with a U/A certificate and a number of cuts.

"Actually, this is quite an unusual situation for a Salman-starrer. His films are usually passed with a 'U' certificate with minimum or no cuts. But Jai Ho is a political thriller about a common man's successful attempt to foil an assassination bid against a chief minister," said a source.

"There are many very hard-hitting dialogues against corruption in present-day Indian politics. This is Salman's first film with a strong political statement," added the source.

It is said that the censor board asked for some of Salman's tirade against corrupt politicians and their dubious politics to be toned down or beeped out.

"There were no abusive dialogues. Salman doesn't abuse on screen. But there are several references to current politics that could have made real-life politicians uncomfortable. These have gone. Also, some seconds from a few action scenes that were found to be lengthy," said the source.

With the cuts and the 'U/A' certificate, Jai Ho becomes Salman's first censor-restricted film.

The film will come out Jan 24.
