Manmarziyaan: These 3 controversial scenes of Abhishek Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu chopped off by censor board

‘Manmarziyaan’ producers have deleted three scenes from the film after members of the Sikh community objected to a couple of scenes which have hurt religious sentiments. The producers approached the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) regarding the matter.

According to a censor copy, the three deleted scenes include a 29-second smoking sequence of Abhishek Bachchan, a minute long scene featuring Taapsee Pannu and Abhishek entering a gurudwara where she thinks of her lover Vicky Kaushal and an 11-second scene where Taapsee is shown smoking.

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap took to twitter lashed out on the censor board, Sikh critics and Eros.

Earlier the director had tweeted his official statement as well when the controversy had reached a heating point.
