Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has said that he respects the decision of the Bombay High Court’s that four cuts from a scene from ‘Jolly LLB 2’ need to be made if the film has to release in theatres this weekend.
The High Court on Wednesday has said a scene in the film was defamatory to the judiciary and could amount to contempt of court.
“High Court has not cut four scenes. It has given four cuts in a scene. I’ve heard it many times that they have cut four scenes. With due respect to High Court, if they feel that something like this is important, then their decision will be accepted and we have already done that” Akshay said.
“Sometimes it happens that somebody (CBFC) misses out something. I know that once censor board rules out a decision, the court follows that… There are some cases, like 0.01 percent. I abide by the court’s decision, and with what they have given”
“The High Court asked for few cuts in a scene. We have done that. Now everything has been solved and the film is set for release on February 10” Akshay added.
The scenes ordered to be deleted include the ones in which a judge is shown crouching behind the dais, hurling of a shoe at a judge and an objectionable dialogue.
