Shruti HaasanNikhil Advani axes Shruti Haasan's dialogue to get U/A certificate for D-Day

Director Nikhil Advani's D- Day was passed by the Censor Board Of Film Certification with a few dialogue cuts and a 'UA' (permitted for children's viewing with parental guidance) certificate.

Surprisingly, no cuts were ordered in verbal content regarding Pakistan.

The film starring Rishi Kapoor and Arjun Rampal, is based on on cross-border terrorism about a group of RAW agents assigned to bring a Dawood-like terrorist back to India from Pakistan.

Nikhil advani says: "I expected some objection to what could be considered inflammatory dialogues about Pakistan. But the Censor Board has not touched a single word pertaining to Pakistan."

What has gone are a few dialogues by Shruti Haasan who plays a Pakistani prostitute.

Nikhil Advani says, "These are lines where she does hardcore business bargaining with her clients. I was advised to get rid of these dialogues to obtain a 'UA' certificate. I happily took them off. My apprehensions were not about what Shruti's character has to say but about the far more important dialogues on cross-border terrorism. I am happy to say the Censor Board didn't touch any of those."
