Rang De Basanti press conference puts speculations to rest

Rang De Basanti has been in the news for all the wrong reasons lately. Which is why the producers, UTV and the director Rakeysh Mehra decided to hold a press conference in order to clear the air. They felt that a non issue had been made an issue and they wanted to make it a non issue again! The film has been in the news due to scenes that were found objectionable by the IAF. Ronnie Screwvala was present and stated that most of the stories that have been circulating are untrue. Only one scene has been cut from the film. This scene depicts a festival of the Nihang Sikhs and has animals in it. Said Screwwala, “You can speculate till the cows come home but there are no cuts recommended by anyone other than the horse riding scene. We didn’t know but the overall festival has been banned.” So totally, only twenty seconds of the movie were offensive and that too because of the use of animals. The scene in question will be edited today. The film has been approved by the IAF without any cuts. There were also reports doing the rounds that Aamir Khan wasn’t too co-operative about the film’s promotions. To this he replied, “Aamir just got married. He’s shooting for his next film so I don’t know what the issue is. Otherwise he’s really present. You cant have an actor like Aamir not involved with the day to day progress of the film.” Talking about why the film has been postponed, he stated that they would be able to capitalize the long weekend due to Republic Day. So as of today, Rang De Basanti will hit theatres on 25th January.
