Dancer and actor, Sanam Johar, who is currently seen as choreographer to ex-couple, Madhurima Tuli and Vishal Aditya Singh, in Star Plus’ hit series ‘Nach Baliye 9’ was baffled to see a segment of last week’s episode delayed on Hotstar.

According to India-Forums, Johar put together a LGBTQ sequence, which aired on the channel as normal over the weekend. However, the stream of the episode on Hotstar was delayed, most probably down to the content.

Johar told the publication, “I was also surprised when I watched the episode on Hotstar and saw that it was missing as in this day and age a lot of us are not able to tune in live to watch a particular episode. Our act, the marks as well as the judge’s remarks had all been edited out because of global permissions. However, though delayed later on the act was added in but we lost out on the time when the voting lines were open. Its a very ‘real’ issue which our country has recently tackled and I’m hoping that through entertainment we are able to make a small difference to society when possible.”
