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.
