The censors are objecting to certain scenes. However, as these scenes are integral to the film, the producers are fighting against these cuts which would affect the basic flow of the film. In fact, it has been learnt that Ekta Kapoor is personally fronting the issue with the censors. Recently, two films almost in a similar genre, Haunted and Murder 2 were given U/A, and also premiered on television.
Sources indicate that there is immense interest from the advertisers for advertising during the film, given its superhit status and the huge buzz that was present during the theatrical release, and therein the need to get the film censored early.
