The Dirty Picture to finally air on Sony on 26 August

Though we could not get in touch with Sony senior executive vice president and business head Sneha Rajani, she tweeted, “It will be showcased twice in the day once at 12 p.m. and then at 8:30 p.m. not post 11 pm.”
"We are very elated that finally our National award-winning film will make it to TV screens," said Balaji Motion Pictures head of acquisition and distribution Girish Johar.
The Dirty Picture was earlier declared inappropriate for primetime TV viewing by the information and broadcasting ministry. The film has since then been further edited and has now been given the green signal for telecast.

“And if u have issues with the cuts, contact the authorities and not us. We are merely law abiding Broadcasters,” she further remarked.

The film also features Naseeruddin Shah, Emraan Hashmi and Tusshar Kapoor....being a human...
