Censor Board Strikes Again, Chops Off Ranbir-Aishwarya's Intimate Scenes From 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'

Karan Johar's troubles with his magnum opus, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil continue to rise.

After getting into the Indo-Pak controversy, where a political outfit demanded a ban on one of the film's actors Fawad Khan, it's now the Pahlaj Nihalani-led CBFC's (popularly called as the Censor Board) turn to trample over Johar's romantic drama.

And they're doing a good job at it.

According to a report in dna, the intimate scenes between Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's characters have been snipped off by the Board.

A glimpse of the couple's sensual chemistry could be seen in the 'Bulleya' song but it seems that viewers won't get to see any of it, once the film opens in theaters on October 28.

A source was quoted in the paper as saying, "Karan Johar wanted to make sure not a single moment was tampered with. However, the Censor Board members, while appreciating the film's mature theme and high level of aesthetics, objected to some steamy moments between Aishwarya and Ranbir."

The source further told the paper that Johar put up a tough fight but the CBFC members would have none of it. Finally, the director relented and agreed to delete 3 intimate scenes between Ranbir and Aishwarya, one of which is the same as shown in the trailer.

Johar did have the option to go to the Revising Committee, which may have passed the film without any cuts, but from what it appears, he chose not to do so.
