‘OK Jaanu’ Gets U/A Rating After Four ‘Minor Cuts’ In Dialogue

Shaad Ali’s OK Jaanu has received an U/A certificate from the CBFC. The film, a Hindi remake of OK Kanmani, has received four cuts, according to a DNA report.  “Only four verbal cuts were ordered. And these were minor alterations in the dialogue. Surprisingly, the censor board had no objection to the the theme of live-in relationship.”


The CBFC Chairman Pahlaj Nihalani, who famously ordered several cuts in Udta Punjab and Spectre, has toned down his Sanskaari rhetoric recently. He even said, “The times are changing. At one time couples couldn’t even meet before marriage. Now, they get a chance to spend time with one another to know whether they are compatible or not. That’s a social reality. We must recognise and respect the changes in social mores.”

Interestingly, when the Tamil original, directed by Mani Ratnam, went for censor certification, the CBFC did not view it in a positive light. The makers were forced to go to the Revising Committee to get the film cleared.

OK Jaanu has been co-produced by Mani Ratnam’s Madras Talkies and Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. Naseeruddin Shah and Leela Samson play pivotal roles in the movie . The movie is slated for a worldwide release on January 13, 2017.
