The Indian audiences are clearly not happy with CBFC's various decisions. From asking the makers of De De Pyaar De to replace the wine bottle in Rakul Preet's hands with a bouquet of flowers to chopping some major action scenes from Keanu Reeves' John Wick Chapter 3, CBFC has been brutal in its certain decisions. And the case with Arjun Kapoor's India's Most Wanted was no different. The body asked the movie makers to edit the Gita and Quran references from its final edit. Director Raj Kumar Gupta has now reacted to this big decision and he's definitely not happy about it. India's Most Wanted VS PM Narendra Modi: Will Arjun Kapoor Beat Vivek Oberoi and Race Ahead at the Box Office?

In his recent chat with Indian Express when the filmmaker was asked about his reaction, he insisted that those references were an essential part of the story.  "There was a scene which was written for a certain context in the film and there is some impact derived from that or there is a certain reality portrayed in it." He further revealed how such 'cuts' hamper the storytelling process. And since CBFC believed that such scenes may hurt the religious sentiments, the makers were obligated to bring in the changes. India’s Most Wanted: Arjun Kapoor Reveals the Secret Weapon That Was Needed to Catch India’s Osama.
