Anushka Sharma and Neil BhoopalamVarinder Chawla

Looks like viewers who were eagerly waiting to watch Anushka Sharma's thriller "NH10" will have to wait for some more time.

"NH10", which was supposed to hit theatres on 6 March, will have to wait for a week, due to the Censor Board chopping off few scenes from the film, reported DNA.

The Censor Board that released a list of prohibited words recently, will scan for Sharma's "NH10", making it the first film to face the brunt of the new list.

"NH10" is based on a couple's road trip that goes terribly wrong, landing them in trouble.

The film is dark and intense, and involves some violent, disturbing scenes. Now, with the Censor Board's decision to cut few scenes and cuss words, a massive debate is on between the Board and the makers of the film, resulting in the delay in the film's release.

Iif the issues remain unresolved, the film's release may get postponed even further. 

The film has Sharma and Neil Bhoopalam in the leads; Sharma escapes an attack on her by some unknown men, an incident that happens to another victim later when the duo are on a road trip. The trailer of the film, unveiled earlier this month, has garnered positive responses from viewers.

Directed by Navdeep Singh of "Manorama Six Feet Under" fame and co-produced by Phantom Productions and Eros International, "NH10" marks the first production venture of the "PK" actress.
