The editing is clearly one of the most important part to a film. Writers write what they think to be essential, and the director shoots what they consider necessary.
Then, editors come along and cut up everything, helping the director decide which lines should go and which scenes are unwanted. For a variety of reasons, scenes are deleted from movies.
But there are some deleted scenes that could or should have easily been in the film, whereas some might just be awesome. But you can tell that they probably didn’t have a place in the movie.
Here are the deleted scenes from various Bollywood movies.
Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham
The star studded movie, K3G had it all- love, drama, comedy. But some scenes were cut short in the final edit. Karan Johar shared a special montage video of all those deleted scenes of the movie.
This particular scene between Ranbir Kapoor and Nargis Fakhri was deleted from the movie.
‘Dear Zindagi’ had many deleted scenes which were later released on YouTube. This particular one is where SRK is explaining about Dona Maria’s life to Alia Bhatt. We wish this scene had not been deleted.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil had a great opening at box office. Due to the ban on Pakistani artists, some scenes which featured Fawad Khan were deleted. Also, there were more scenes which were deleted.
Katrina made her debut from this movie which also starred Amitabh Bachchan and Gulshan Grover. There were many steamy scenes which were cut out of the movie but are available on the internet.

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
This movie was somewhat we can relate to. There was a much funny scene in the movie, where Bunny unknowingly flirts with Naina’s mom outside the bathroom door. But, sadly the scene was cut off during the final edit.
Surely, the movie was different from other commercial Bollywood movies. The movie had some deleted scenes, one is where Pankaj Kapoor is peeping through the window. Though the scene was deleted from the movie, it was later released by the makers on YouTube.

As the title suggests, the movie had many sensual scenes which were deleted by the censor board. One such deleted scene made it to the internet in which Rashmi and Adarsh’s bond is growing.

Ranveer Singh became everyone’s favourite with his debut movie. Though there are many deleted scenes from the movie, we like the one where Bittoo flirts with a client to make Shruti jealous.
Angry Indian Goddesses
The movie was in the news for many reasons. Censor board made certain amendments before passing tge movie. Several scenes were deleted but later the makers released those scenes on social media.
The movie was a story of love. All the moments in the movie were great but sadly all of them couldn’t make it to the final edit.
