Violent scenes in Salman Khan's latest film, 'Jai Ho', have been snipped by the Central Board of Film Certification. The film has been issued an U/A certificate with two cuts and a dubbed dialogue.

A source from CBFC said, "Two violent scenes in the film were cut and one dialogue mentioning politicians was asked to be dubbed." The source adds that the dialogue in question went: 'Tera baap kya karta hai', to which the man replies, 'Mera baap politician hai aur bolta hai apna kaam banta bhaad mein jaaye janta.'
"The board asked Sohail Khan to replace the word politician with another word," says the source. There are some more dialogues against corrupt politicians, which the CBFC wants to be beeped out.
This move assumes significance in light of the fact that Salman Khan's films have always been treated well by the CBFC. The source said, "CBFC told Sohail Khan that if he agrees to cut a few more scenes, they will give his film a U certificate. But Sohail believes that these violent scenes are an integral part of the film and is happy with the film's U/A certification.”
Interestingly, the Chiranjeevi-starrer 'Stalin', which 'Jai Ho' is based on, was also given a U/A certificate.
