The Censor Board has refused to give in to demands by Hindu outfits to ban alleged objectionable scenes from Aamir Khan-starrer PK .

Leela Samson, chairperson of Censor Board of Film Certification , said the board would not remove any scenes from the film as it has already been released.

“Every film may hurt religious sentiments of somebody or the other. We can’t remove scenes unnecessarily because there is something called creative endeavour where people present things in their own way. We have already given certificate to PK and we can’t remove anything now because it’s already out for public viewing."
