Both the movies, which will clash at the box office, were screened at the censor board on the same day.

There were reports that Shah Rukh's "Dilwale" failed to make it to the censor board, as it was not ready on time.

"The film's producers were keen and insistent that they get an appointment for certification on Wednesday. We accommodated them. In fact, both Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani were scheduled to be viewed by us on the same day. Unfortunately, Dilwale couldn't make it in time," a source from the board told DNA.

However, the latest report suggests that the film has passed the censor board test without any cuts.
