The Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) is a statutory body under the Ministry for regulation of films for public exhibition in Indian. This body has decided to trim a thirteen-second kissing scene between the film's lead roles, Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt and slammed swear work and some cuss words in the movie. As a result, the final version will be cut shorter.

In addition to this, the name of an alcohol brand has been removed from the list of branding partners, which was set to display in the beginning.

Gully Boy revolves around the story of a young Mumbai street rapper (Ranveer Singh), inspired by the life of Divine and others like him. Alia plays his fierce girlfriend in the film, which is set to release on February 14. After the cutscenes, the film has received UA certification, and producer Ritesh Sidhwani says that “It is absolutely fine."

Previously, the CBFC provoked severe criticism from trimming the kissing scenes in the spy film Spectre. Last year, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavati staring Deepika Padukone was renamed Padmaavat.

In the meanwhile, Gully Boy had its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival and garnered positive reviews. Ranveer Singh is also riding high on the success for his best performance till date.

The film has become one of the most anticipated projects in 2019.
