By Subhash K. Jha The Censor Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) has cleared crime thriller "Shootout At Wadala" (SAW) with an A-certificate, with no visual cuts., Santa Banta News Network
/> However, the censor board has asked that some of the dialogues spoken by John Abraham, Manoj Bajpayee and Tusshar Kapoor be cleaned up. Director Sanjay Gupta is not complaining.

"I think the censor board has been reasonable with my film. We expected an 'A' certificate and got that. Yeah, they did object to some dialogues. My actors are busy re-dubbing the dialogues that the CBFC wanted changed," said Gupta.

An adaptation of Hussain Zaidi's "Dongri to Dubai", the film is about a real incident. It revolves around Mumbai police's first official encounter, in which gangster Manya Surve was shot down.

Apparently Gupta was aware of the hardhitting content and the trouble it may cause with the censors. According to sources, the filmmaker voluntarily removed a whole sequence where debutant Siddharth Kapoor discussed the genesis and relevance of an Hindi expletive with his pals.

The censor's axe also fell on a sequence where a cop tells John that it is not his fault that John has turned out the way he has but his mother's fault. The CBFC has ordered that the reference to the mother be removed.

In another sequence, Tusshar Kapoor exchanges girl talk with his pal and there's a reference to the Taj Mahal and Shah Jehan, which the CBFC has asked to be removed. Also, since no historical or political figure is allowed to be mentioned, the CBFC has asked Gupta to remove a reference to Subhas Chandra Bose made by Manoj.

As for Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone's controversial and hugely popular item song "Laila teri le legi", the board has asked Gupta to change "Le legi" to "Loot legi" in certain portions.
