The song was about the workings of police and lyrics was like, “Laal batti aati hai, sab ki p**t jaati hai, Mumbai police hai sab ka bhai.”
According to Mr J. P. Singh the Regional Officer, CBFC Mumbai, the song had to go because it was insulting to the Mumbai police force.
However, director Ram Gopal Varma disagrees. “We had to remove the song because the censor board felt it was insulting to the police. I disagree.”
With the film being passed for an adult viewership, Department is all set for release this Friday.
