Mumbai: Bejoy Nambiar`s much talked-about "David" has been cleared by the Censor Board Of Film Certification(CBFC) with just two minor cuts in the part featuring actor Vinay Virmani.

The film was cleared late Monday night.

According to sources, the examining committee of the CBFC had ordered prominent cuts in the part featuring Vinay, which deals with the sensitive issue of religious fundamentalism.

Rather than take the cuts, Nambiar went to CBFC`s revising committee to fight against the examining committee`s decision.

After hours of debate Monday evening, the film was finally cleared with two minor cuts with a U/A (parental guidance) certificate.

"I was keen to get a `U/A`, because an `A` certificate now means difficulty in telecast on satellite television. At the same time, I was not willing to take the cuts. So we approached the revising committee. It is all done now," Nambiar said.

Interestingly, the Tamil version of "David" got the same segment, featuring Tamil star Jeeva in place of Vinay, cleared without getting into the revising committee.

"The same content in Tamil was censored with minor cuts after director Bejoy Nambiar sat down and discussed the content with the panel. But when it came to the Hindi version of `David`, the censor board put its foot down asking the director to cut some specially hard-hitting and volatile scenes pertaining to religious fundamentalism," said the source.
