Not ONE, Sunil Grover demanded 25 CUTS in 'Coffee with D'
Sunil Grover starrer ‘Coffee With D’ is releasing tomorrow amidst tension between the director and the lead actor due to the underworld threats. Sunil has backed out from the promotions as he has cowed down to the the threats and wanted 25 cuts in the film, which the director didn’t agree to as Sunil wanted 25 cuts in the film, giving in to the demand of the underworld. Below is a note on the latest development.
“Sunil wanted 25 cuts in the film following the threats,” said Coffee With D director Vishal Mishra.
The undercurrents of tension between comic actor Sunil Grover and Vishal Mishra the producer-director of ‘Coffee With D’ has now reached a flashpoint with Grover claiming he has not been allowed to see the film. The actor tweeted this morning countering the fact on why he has not been promoting the film.
How do I promote something I don’t know what is in it. Makers had promised me to show the film, they did not. Kal Kal karte Kalyug aa Gaya.

To this, Mishra counters, “Sunil wanted 25 cuts in the film following the threats calls. Why should I let Sunil Grover see the film when he wanted to personally edit out all the scenes with Dawood Ibrahim’s controversial dialogues?”
Mishra claims Grover was cowed down after receiving threatens from the underworld. “He was instructed to eliminate those dialogues about Dawood, or else he would be faced with another kind of elimination. He wanted to personally edit out all the scenes that are the crux of the film.”
Mishra says he would rather brave underworld threats than remove the crucial scenes. “I cannot reduce my film to an ineffectual condition just to appease threatening elements. Sunil Grover can afford to mess with the film. I can’t.It’s my baby.”
