On 27th January 2013, Balaji Motion Pictures uploaded a new version of the theatrical trailer, and trimmed nearly every single dialogue from the film off. The character of Dawood Ibrahim is only seen for 3 seconds in the new trailer, in order to avoid any hassles. Only John Abraham’s dialogues under the name of ‘Manya Surve’ is revealed in the trailer.
