"The board has asked for the profane words to be deleted from Mardaani's promo. Apart from this, there was a scene in the promo showing a man attempting rape and this was also asked to be edited out; it showed the man pull at the blouse of a woman," said the source.

It may be recalled that in the recent past, the Censor Board was lenient in its treatment of cuss words. The board used to categorize films and hand out certification as per the number of cuss words in a film. But if the crackdown on verbal abuse in Mardaani's promo is anything to go by, it looks like all that is set to change. In Mardaani, Rani Mukerji plays a crime branch officer who investigates human trafficking cases. The film's spokesperson was unavailable for comment.
