Film board for blurring national emblem in 'Dabangg 2'

dabangg 2Though the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) was largely happy with the content of "Dabangg 2" but apparently some members of the examining committee noticed an aberration in some sequences which if not corrected could have caused a national furore.

Apparently, the national emblem framed on the wall of Chulbul Pandey's police station was depicted incorrectly.

Sensitive to the slightest abnormality pertaining to national sentiments, the CBFC has asked producer-director Arbaaz Khan to simply blur the corner of the film's frames where the national emblem appears.

"Arbaaz took three cuts...voluntarily including a reference to the word 'dhobi' which he changed to 'dhodi' and 'prasad' for holy offering which has also been changed. But he was in a quandary regarding the national emblem. To re-shoot at that late stage would have been impossible," a source said.

"To delete all the shots where the emblem appears would have been impractical. To re-shoot at that late stage was out of the question," the source added.

So it was decided that blurring the screen wherever the national emblem appears would be the most practical thing to do.

Explaining the censorial intervention, the CBFC's official spokesperson Anjum Rajabali says: "The national emblem has to always be shown exactly as it is. This rule is governed by the National Emblem Act. It is likely that a minor visual inaccuracy occurs inadvertently sometimes. Hence the need to blur."

The last time a blur was recommended by the CBFC for a politically volatile emblem was when a flag reading 'Save Tibet' showed up in Imtiaz Ali's "Rockstar".
