Whose izzat is it anyway in TMK?

It's time to say goodbye to tawaif. After making it's presence loud and clear in the promos of TEES MAAR KHAN, the word tawaif would now be relegated to just a beep when this Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif starrer is screened in theaters. This is in response to a recommendation by the Censor board that wanted to beep the word tawaif as it was found to be offensive.

Not willing to bow down, Farah Khan and Shirish Kunder took the film to the revising board. However, their plea was shot down there as well and now Akshay would be mouthing the dialogue as - "ki lut-ti izzat bachaana, aur TEES MAAR KHAN ko kaid karna, dono bekaar hai! "

"There were so many other cuts suggested as well. Thankfully now there are just three cuts in the film," sighs Farah Khan, "While tawaif has been beeped, the other two changes are around a flag and Doordarshan respectively."

Censor board had an issue with a flag that seemed to be carrying an Indian tricolour. While green and saffron were present in the flag, there was no Ashok Chakra. However Censors were not convinced and now the flag has been digitally corrected to be bearing a red and white colour. Also, while there was a reference to Doordarshan in the one of the dialogues of the film, now the word would be replaced by some other word.

"It's okay, one can't help such things," signs off Farah Khan who surrendered to the situation is currently moving ahead full steam with her promotional drive of TEES MAAR KHAN which releases next Friday.
