The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) is back at it again but this time around, there appears to be rarely any criticism of it on social media. The board has cut a few dialogues from Abir Sengupta’s comedy Indoo Ki Jawani which stars Kiara Advani and Aditya Seal in the lead roles. One of the changes made by the CBFC to Indoo Ki Jawani is the switching of the word ‘haramzade’ with ‘aatankvaadi’.
Another change that has been made is that a dialogue speaking about crimes against women in Delhi has been deleted and replaced with this generic statement: “Crime against women aaj kal jitna ho raha hai na uska koi jawab nahi hai tumhare paas…tolerant ke naam par to fraud ho tum log (You have no explanation for the increasing number of crimes against women. You are frauds in the name of being tolerant).”

Indoo Ki Jawani is based on the story of a woman called Indira Gupta (played by Kiara Advani) who turns to dating app Tinder when she can’t find the man of her dreams in Ghaziabad. She is encouraged in this endeavour by her best friend, Sonal who is played by Mallika Dua. Indoo finds the perfect man in Samar (played by Aditya Seal) but soon discovers that he is a Pakistani man. The trailer also shows news bulletins about suspected terrorists from Pakistan infiltrating the city and naturally, Indoo assumes that Samar is one of them.
Watch the trailer below:
Indoo Ki Jawani was slated for a June 5 release but due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was pushed and there were rumours that the film would opt for an OTT release. However, Advani shared that the film will be hitting theatres on 11th December.
