Jha said the cuts suggested will ruin the texture of the movie and he has moved to the tribunal against the decision of the censor board's revising committee.

"What can I say? He wanted to give 'A' certificate. When I asked why, he said, 'There are many abusive words in your movie. There is word 'saala'. He wanted us to remove the word and certain scenes but I don't think it is an abuse.  It is used regularly by people. It is important to the texture of the movie," Jha said.

The director said he had first gone to the examining committee but the members there had a difference of opinion then he moved to the revising committee, which was presided by Nihalani himself.

Jha said Nihalani could have discussed and a solution could have been found but instead he handed over many cuts to him.

"He has suggested 11 cuts and told me to beep the word 'saala'. If I begin to do that then I have to beep it in 50 places."

Nihalani, however, said that Jha was not telling the whole truth.
