, featuring actors Yuvraj Parashar and Kapil Sharma, by about 40 per cent. Another scene taken of a nude Parasher from behind has been deleted.

The first censor committee refused to pass. The revising committee also had problems with a kissing and lovemaking scenes, along with some dialogue.

“It took us three month to convince the board about the significance of the scenes,” says Sharma.

Parashar points out that a lot of it had to do with the fact that the scenes features two men instead of a girl and a boy: “We convinced them that the film is about love and not sex. And got away with 60 per cent of the scenes intact.”

Dunno Y Under pressure

The actors have been getting threatening mails from an organisation in Delhi over the last week warning them with dire consequences if the film was released.

A complaint was lodged with the Khar Police Station last Thursday. Says a petrified Parashar, “Kapil and I are new to the film industry and don’t want these people to harm us before our career even takes off.”
