The central government reduced the film's rating to an A certificate after significant cuts were made to the film. The cuts included the removal of a woman's bare waist (there was a scene where the lead actress was dressed in a bikhoi with her skirt arranged in a way that showed her bare waist and the lap-dancer style dance routine that she performed was removed); a few kissing scenes (there was a scene where the lead actress was kissing a leading man in a taxi); and a scene that showed two men hitting each other with a bamboo stick. The scene was removed and replaced with a scene where two men were reading a newspaper and one of them was drinking water. The first version of the film had been shown to the CBFC for approval on 7 January 2009.
