As per the list of changes recommended by the CBFC, the word ‘RAW’ has been asked to replace with the word ‘Hamare’ in two scenes in Pathan. In a dialogue, the Hindi word ‘Langde Lulle’ (handicapped) has been changed to ‘Toote Foote’ (broken). It seems that certain references made to the PMO has been removed and the word PM has been changed to President and Minister. The latter changes have been recommended for about 13 times in the film. Other words that need to be replaced includes Ashoka Chakra with Veer Puraskar, Mrs Bharatmata with Hamari Bharatmata, Sanvidhan with Vagairah, among others. A few other simple words that have been replaced includes Scotch with the word ‘Drink’ and ‘Black Prison Russia’ with ‘Black Prison’.
A few changes have been also been added to the controversial song ‘Besharam Rang’. In the list of alterations, the CBFC has asked the makers of the film to remove close-up shots of the buttocks, sensational and gyrating dance moves on the words, ‘bahut tang kiya’, as well as side pose that indicates partial nudity. These shots are expected to be replaced but the CBFC has given the liberty to the makers to find substitutes for these shots in the song. Last but not the least, in the concluding changes, the Censor Board has asked the filmmakers to include Hindi Language titles along with English credit titles.
