The film faced massive censorship issues when the makers sought out a certificate from the CBFC. Back then, the certification board was headed by Pahlaj Nihalani. The Censor Board came out with a whopping list of 94 cuts and 13 pointers prior to the film’s release. One of the pointers even included deleting the names of cities in Punjab. The Bombay HC cleared the film with one cut and disclaimers. But the film’s trouble didn’t end there. Two days before its release, the film was leaked online thus making it difficult to sustain itself in the box office.
