Press Trust of India  |  Kochi 

National award-winning Salim Kumar today said he had to remove a scene featuring a cow from his newly-released Malayalam movie, following a censor board suggestion.

Kumar told Malayalam portals here that he removed a "natural scene" featuring cow from the movie titled "Daivame Kaithozham K Kumarakanam", after the Central Board of Certification (CBFC) asked him to cut it.

Directed and written by himself, the movie was released today.

It also Jayaram, Anusree and Sreenivasan.

Kumar said that he did not initiate a legal action as the removal of that particular scene did not affect the movie.

A legal action would have delayed the release of the movie, he said.

Kumar had won the National Award in the Best category for his performance in in 2010.
