Shahid: Censor board orders change in ‘Gandhi’ dialogue

The controversial dialogue in Hansal Mehta’s film has been modified

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has asked director Hansal Mehta to change a dialogue in his much-talked about forthcoming movie Shahid. The members of CBFC felt that the dialogue, “Apne aap ko jihadiyon ka Gandhi samajhta hain? (Do you consider yourself the Gandhi of jehadis?) might hurt people’s sentiments. Therefore, the name Gandhi has been replaced with the word masiha (messiah).

The trailer of the movie is running successfully online, as it doesn’t come under censorship but it will only appear on television channels after the required changes are made.

“Yes, the information is correct. We have been told to make changes in the dialogue and it has been changed for the TV promo. We totally understand the censor board’s point of view,” Mehta said.

Releasing on October 18, the movie is based on the true story of slain human rights activist and lawyer Shahid Azmi, who was killed in 2010 by unidentified assailants in his office. It stars actor Rajkumar Yadav in the lead role.
