The bumpy ride for Aamir Khan starrer Rang De Basanti seems to have come to an end with the Animal Welfare Board (AWB) Saturday giving "in principle" go ahead for its release on Republic Day with the deletion of an "objectionable" scene.

Two days after it withdrew its consent for the screening of the movie, AWB Chairman J C Kala said in New Delhi the Board has "in principle" cleared the release of the film, as it found "nothing objectionable" regarding the treating of animals in the movie.




The "consent" comes after the film's producer Roney Screwala apologised to the Board for "misleading" AWB regarding the shooting of animals in the film.

But, the decision is subject to the ratification of Board members and Kala is contacting concerned others as a 'Full Board' could not be convened as he is leaving for abroad to attend an international conference.

Saturday's meeting was attended by Kala, board members Maneka Gandhi and Uttaranchal Principal Secretary Rajeev Gupta, who viewed the film and found "nothing objectionable which harms the animals except one shot".

"We have viewed the film and found nothing objectionable. We have given inpriciple consent for the film," Kala said adding that the Board was "processing the case of clearance".

He said the filmmaker have also agreed to delete a 20 second shot from the film which the Board members found "objectionable".

The film is directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and also stars British actress Alice Patten .

'Rang De Basanti' is the third film in recent months to have evoked ire of the AWBI for the unauthorized use of animals in the shooting. Earlier, the AWBI had objected to use of animals in Amol Palekar 's Paheli and Akbar Khan 's period venture Taj Mahal .
