The second trailer of Vidya Balan starrer The Dirty Picture is too hot for the Censor Board to handle. The officials have censored certain portions in the video which were not appropriate for TV and theatrical broadcast.

As a result, the objectionable portions have been chopped off from the trailer by producers.

A source told Mumbai Mirror, "The producers wanted a U/A for the trailer. They wanted the promo to be shown with as many films as possible starting with Pankaj Kapur's Mausam, which is expected to hit the theatres next week."

So what exactly were the objectionable scenes? The sources told the tabloid, "A lovemaking scene between Vidya Balan and Naseeruddin Shah in the car has been removed. Certain abusive words in Shah’s dialogue have been muted.

The unedited version of the trailer, however, is still available on net.

Balaji Motion Pictures’ CEO, Tanuj Garg told the tabloid, "The Censor Board felt that a few scenes and words in the trailer might not be appropriate for television and for people watching a U/A film in cinemas. On the other hand, we were clear that we needed a U/A. Hence, we complied with their requests."
