Zareen Khan and Karan Singh Grover starrer "Hate Story 3" has already made the audience curious with its steamy promos.

The film, which will be released on 4 December, also features Sharman Joshi and Daisy Shah in pivotal roles.

As it is soon to hit the theatres, the film has to go through the censor board. While the f-word and other cuss words have been removed from the film, the censor board has also removed the use of the Sanskrit word for sex – sambhog.

"It was a scene where Karan Singh Grover expresses a desire to have sex with Zareen Khan. The censor board objected to the word," DNA quoted a source as saying.

On the other hand, an insider from the board said that "Hate Story 3" already had a few voluntary cuts.

"Very often, such sexy films show a lot of skin and smutty language in the promos for the internet. But when they bring the films to us they do away with all the 'dirt' voluntarily. 'Hate Story 3' came to us with quite a few voluntary cuts," the insider told DNA.

Apart from Karan, who made his debut with Bipasha Basu in erotic horror flick "Alone", the other three actors surprised audience with their hot looks in "Hate Story 3."

Daisy made her debut as the girl next door in Salman Khan's "Jai Ho", while Zareen too made her first appearance on-screen with the "Dabangg" actor in "Veer" as a princess.

However, Sharman has always entertained viewers with his performances on big screen, which have definitely been different from his role in "Hate Story 3".

Though the songs and trailer have raised the temperature among the viewers, it will be interesting to watch the actors coming out of their comfort zone in this erotic thriller.
