Arjun Kapoor will be seen in Raj Kumar Gupta's India's Most Wanted. The film hits the theatres tomorrow. The film is a story about five Intelligence Bureau officers who are in an undercover mission to hunt a deadly terrorist. In an interview with Indian Express, Raj Kumar Gupta was asked about CBFC's demand to cut a few scenes from the film.

The CBFC asked Raj Kumar Gupta to remove the references to Gita and Quran in the film which the makers did. When the Raid director was asked about it, he said that such edits take away from the storytelling process. He added, "There was a scene which was written for a certain context in the film and there is some impact derived from that or there is certain reality portrayed in it."

Gupta said that CBFC told them that such scenes might hurt religious sentiments and the makers didn't want to do that. So when they were told to edit out these scenes, they voluntarily did it and resubmitted the film.

Recently, the screening of India's Most Wanted was held in Mumbai which was attended by several Bollywood celebs. After watching the film, celebs like Abhishek Bachchan, Rajkummar Rao, Taapsee Pannu, Manoj Bajpayee and others appreciated the film and Arjun Kapoor's performance in it.
