Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju featuring Ranbir Kapoor is all set to release tomorrow. The film is based on the life of Sanjay Dutt. The film has been passed by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) with one cut. The body has asked the makers to remove the scene from Sanju where Ranbir is seen near an overflowing toilet in jail. The CBFC is of an opinion that the scene was not adding to the narrative.

A source while talking about this to Mid-day said, “The scene wasn’t adding value to the narrative besides displaying the helpless situation of the protagonist. It was a judgment call taken from an artistic point of view which the filmmakers agreed to.” In an earlier interview, filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani while talking about this scene had said, “The scene is from Sanju’s earlier stint in jail. It happened in 1993, during the monsoon. On that particular day, the drain in his cell overflowed due to heavy rains.” Also Read - KGF Chapter 2: Sanjay Dutt Shares His First Reaction When Adheera's Role Was Offered
“As per the information available, the government and jail authorities are taking good care of all the barracks of the jails. We’ve never heard of any such incidents anywhere. Earlier as well many movies were released based on gangsters’ stories, wherein jails were shown — but never such an incident”, activist Prithvi Mhaske wrote to Prasoon Joshi while objecting to the controversial jail scene.
