CBFC demands to chop off the scene of 'Hanuman Chalisa' from Phillauri

CBFC hasn't spared Phillauri like other films and asked the filmmakers to chop off a scene showing Hanuman Chalisa'

A source says, "This amounted to hurting of religious sentiments. The CBFC has asked for the Hanuman Chalisa to be removed from the soundtrack. All the audience will hear now is Suraj long droning chant which would be inaudible."

Also CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani said, "In my opinion it’s not the CBFC’s job to sit in judgment on the content of a film. We can only make amends in the presentation of the content."

He also added, "Not propagating superstition and blind faith falls in the jurisdiction of the State government. If we sat judgement over films on ghosts then we’d have to question why classics like Mahal, Gumnam, Woh Kaun Thi and Lekin were passed."
