The Censor Board has asked the makers of upcoming Hindi movie "Drishyam", starring Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran, Tabu and Rajat Kapoor, to remove a scene, which featured a lady getting slapped by the police.

Directed by Nishikant Kamat, the film was scanned by the members of the Censor Board, who thought that the scene was abusive and hence, it needs to be chopped off. "The Censor Board, under the chairmanship o Pahlaj Nihalani, is very clear on the question of violence against women. Under no circumstance, are they willing to allow a woman to be shown being hit, abused or violated," Bollywoodlife quoted a source.

"Drishyam" is the remake of a Malayalam film of the same title. It also has a Tamil version too, and both the versions were superhits. Although the concerned scene has been deleted in the Hindi version, the same scene was allowed in the Malayalam and the Tamil versions. Apart from the mentioned scene, some dialogues were also removed from the film.

The Ajay Devgn starrer appears to have a good mix of emotion, action, family values, suspense and thrill. Ajay plays the role of a simple man, who runs a cable TV network. He is a 4th grade dropout, who believes in living a simple life, and loves his family the most. His family comprises of his wife and two daughters. The movie is about how a commoner, whose family somehow gets involved in a crime, goes against all odds to save his loved ones. "Drishyam" is slated to release on 31 July.
