'It's not the case': Alia Bhatt on reports of 'Khela Hobe' cut in 'Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani'

Kolkata/IBNS: Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt's 'Khela Hobe (the game is on)' dialogue, which is widely used in politics, has grabbed the audience's attention in the trailer of filmmaker Karan Johar's upcoming Hindi film 'Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani'.

Now reports suggest the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has demanded cuts of some scenes along with the 'Khela Hobe' dialogue, which was used by Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress against the country's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the 2021 West Bengal assembly elections.

When Alia was asked about the CBFC's demand, the actress said, "There have been some minor cuts that have been asked by the board (CBFC) and we respect that completely and that has been cooperated. But for 'Khela Hobe', it's not the case. The final cuts are seamlessly flowing regardless of these little minor cuts."

"We don't want to give too much weight because it was a scene which plays out between me and Jaya ma'am (Jaya Bachchan) in the film. One has to know the context of the scene to know why Rani (Alia's character) had to utter that line.

"So we don't want to spoil the moment by speaking too much on it. I would request the audience to watch the film first," she added during the film's promotions in Kolkata on Monday.

'Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani', which stars Ranveer Singh opposite Alia, also features Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan, Churni Ganguly, Tota Roy Choudhury in pivotal roles.

The film is slated to release on July 28.
