'Gypsy' went to the censors and the CBFC has ordered ten cuts in scenes which reportedly are critical of the politics of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.  The makers have appealed to the Appellate Tribunal of the Censor Board and it remains to be seen if the film will release with the cuts or be allowed to play in its original version.
