Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 releases on Friday.

A reference to the epic Ramayana has been removed from the upcoming Hrithik Roshan-starrer Super 30. According to the official Central Board of Film Certificate (CBFC) website, the words ‘Ramayan mein’ were replaced with ‘Raj Puran mein’ in a particular dialogue of the film, which has been granted a U-certification by the censors.

The film based on mathematician Anand Kumar’s life, has had four modifications. Among the modifications suggested by the censors were the removal of two shots in the Paisa song. The first had a scantily-clad dancer being held by a politician, and the other chopped scene showed the politician touching her. These have been replaced with regular dancing shots.
