On August 25, Mirror had reported that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) told Homi Adajania that if he wanted his upcoming film, ‘Finding Fanny’, to be passed with a UA certificate, he’d have to snip off a ‘vulgar’ line in which leading lady Deepika Padukone tells Arjun Kapoor, “I am a virgin.” 

Now Mirror has learnt that the line has been cleared by Chairperson of the CBFC, Leela Samson and is back in the film. 

Confirming the news, a relieved and elated Homi said, “When we went for the Hindi dub, we sent a mail to Leela Samson stating our case. We were not objecting to the cut, we were just confused by the contradictory action because the line had been passed earlier in the trailers. We wanted some clarity on the issue. She agreed with us that if it had been passed earlier, continuation should be maintained. It’s a positive sign.” 

When contacted, Leela Samson said, “I was not aware of what had happened till they (filmmakers) told me about it. They were justified in their request. It was a mistake which needed to be rectified. I took the necessary step.”
