The producers of Dabangg 3 decided to shorten the film by nine minutes from the second day of its release. Theatres were instructed to play the revised version with immediate effect. A source said, “Out of nine minutes, approximately eight minutes have been removed from the first half. The song Awara, featuring Salman and Saiee Manjrekar, has been edited out. Also, their other song Naina Lade has been slightly trimmed. “Moreover, a few comedy scenes didn’t elicit the desired laughs from the moviegoers. Those too have been chucked out from the revised version,” the source added.
