The complaint addressed to Prasoon Joshi, Chairman (CBFC) and the makers of the film and Ranbir Kapoor had stated that the government takes good care of all the barracks and an incident like this was never heard of.

“In the trailer of the movie we have seen a scene that Sanjay Dutt was in such a barrack of a jail in which the toilet overflowed. According to the information available, the government and jail authorities are taking good care of all the barracks. We never heard any such incidents anywhere. Earlier as well many movies were released based on the gangsters where in the jails were covered, but never had seen such incidents. This particular scene will make a bad impression about the jails and jails authorities of the Indians,” it read.
