The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) granted Jawan, the upcoming movie starring Shah Rukh Khan, a U/A certification just two weeks prior to its scheduled release. The movie, which has a runtime of 2 hours and 49 minutes, has been subject to a total of seven alterations suggested by the censor board.

As per a copy of the report that is going viral on social media, the makers have been asked to reduce the visuals of a scene pertaining to suicide. The gory sequence of a beheaded body asked to be removed as well as an ‘out of context’ reference of the Honourable President of India has been modified with Head Of State’. In addition, “Paida hoke” was deleted, and “Ungli karna” was changed to “Usse use karo,” among other alterations.

Jawan looks to be an intense action thriller that charts the psychological development of a character determined to right social injustices. The film also stars Nayanthara, and Vijay Sethupathi in lead roles, Deepika Padukone in a special appearance, along with Sanya Malhotra, Priyamani, Girija Oak, Sanjeeta Bhattacharya, Lehar Khan, Aaliyah Qureshi, Ridhi Dogra, Sunil Grover and Mukesh Chhabra will be seen in pivotal roles. Directed by Atlee, Jawan will hit the big screens on September 7 in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
