Hanuman Chalisa sequence cut from Phillauri?


Anushka Sharma’s ‘Phillauri’ has hit the screens today, but the Censor Board has asked to cut out a sequence from the movie. The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has reportedly asked the makers to remove a scene where Suraj Sharma is seen reciting the Hanuman Chalisa in a bath tub, in a ghost’s presence. The reason given for cutting the scene is that the recital of the Hanuman Chalisa is supposed to eliminate ghosts and not pacify them as shown in the film. Anushka Sharma plays the lead role of a friendly ghost in ‘Phillauri’.
