The movie is a sequel to the 2012 movie Hate Story, which starred Bengali actress Paoli Dam.
The new trailer for Hate Story 2, released this week, has been a hit on YouTube. It has garnered close to 3 million views since its release a few days ago.
Many fans are looking to see some scenes that were too steamy for regular television.
The Times of India reported:
“The steamy song from the Feroz Khan-directed Dayavan (1988), Aaj Tum Pe Jo Pyar Aaya Hai, which had Vinod Khanna and Madhuri Dixit share a passionate kiss, has been recreated in Vikram Bhatt’s Hate Story 2. But this time there’s a hiccup.”
“The Censor Board has taken objection to the version of the song that has Surveen Chawla and Jay Bhanushali-the lead cast of the film.”
The report went on to note that the board told Hate Story 2 producers that the song could not be aired on television, leading filmmakers to make some snips.
“Yes, the Censor Board has taken an objection to the lovemaking scene,” noted Vinod Bhanushali of T-Series, the producers of the movie. “We are abiding by their rules and toning the scene down.”
The film’s official synopsis hints toward some racy scenes remaining in the feature:
“The movie is a revenge thriller with Surveen Chawla playing the protagonist in a complete new bold, sexy avatar and is willing to cross any boundaries to take revenge for her lover’s (Jay) death. The bold film is noted for its frank portrayal of sex and explicit language. Hate story 2 goes further into the murky world of Mumbai’s dirty politics. The plot thickens with even more bold content and the director hopes to push the envelope with the film into the grey shades that Bollywood rarely explores – the politics of sex.”
Hate Story 2 will be released into theaters on July 18.
