This Friday's big release, the Akshay Kumar starrer Khatta Meetha got itself embroiled in a controversy earlier this week. After the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) viewed and cleared the film on July 13, a certain party lodged a complaint against clearing the film due to the presence of a scene in which an elephant is shown pulling the road-roller.
The complainant seems to have found the scene objectionable as it depicts cruelty towards animals and hence asked the CBFC to order the makers to delete the scene. Such a step would have resulted in delaying the dispatch of overseas prints and could have even pushed the release date further. However, things seem to have been sorted now.
When we got in touch with the PR of the film he said, "Yes there was a small issue but it has been sorted now. In fact the overseas prints have also been delivered."
