Trailer censorship? Reference to ‘72 hoors’ removed from the trailer of movie Uri: The Surgical Strike

The original trailer was released on December 4, but now that is deleted and an edited one uploaded on December 29.

While the trailer of upcoming movie The Accidental Prime Minister attracting a lot of attention and Congress party demanding to censor the movie, it seems trailer of another upcoming movie has been censored.

The trailer of movie Uri: The Surgical Strike was released on December 4 by the producers, RSVP movies, on Youtube. The trailer had caused a lot of buzz on media and social media. The movie chronicles the surgical strike that Indian security forces conducted inside Pakistan in 2016, as a retaliatory action against a Pakistan supported terror attack on an army base in Uri.

But now it has come to our notice that the official trailer uploaded by the producers has been deleted from Youtube, and it was re-uploaded on 29 December. Interestingly, while the original trailer was 2:25 minutes long, while this is now 2:12 minutes long. Which means the original trailer has been trimmed by 13 seconds.

The Uri trailer was shared by Vicky Khaushal on Twitter, who plays the lead role in the movie, with a link to the Youtube video. The link now shows that the video is unavailable.

Probing into the matter, we found the original Uri trailer which was curated by a movie related channel on Youtube. Comparing both versions of the trailer, it can be seen that the last scene on the trailer has been deleted. In that scene, playing the role of an Indian Army officer, actor Vicky Khaushal is seen telling a captured terrorist, “apni 72 hooron ko hamara salam bolna, kehna dawat par intezar karein, aaj bahot saare mehman bhejne wale hain” (give our greetings to your 72 hoors, tell them wait for the feast, today we are sending a lot of guests).

The 72 hoors (or houris) refers to a belief among jihadis that when the terrorists die in jihad and go to Jannat (heaven), they are rewarded with 72 virgin women. This is a widespread belief among Islamist terrorists, with terror organisations like ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram etc using this promise to lure and recruit new terrorists.

It is not clear why the RSVP movies deleted this scene from the trailer. Perhaps it was asked to be deleted by the Censor board but they had erroneously included in the trailer, or maybe they were pressurised and threatened by someone to do this, or perhaps the makers of the movie thought it may hurt religious sentiments and decided to remove it.

Here is the edited trailer of the movie uploaded on 29th December:

And this is the original Uri trailer that was released on 4th December:

Other than Vicky Kaushal, the movie stars Paresh Rawal, Mohit Raina and Yami Gautam. It is scheduled to be released on 11 January 2019, the same date as The Accidental Prime Minister.
