India cuts 'anti-war' film

War and Peace features some of the jubilant scenes that met the secret nuclear testing, with footage showing the praise heaped on Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

The film also covers the consequences of nuclear bombs and the effects of Hindu fundamentalism on the country.

It picked up an award at the state-run Bombay International Film Festival in February.

Scenes that could be stripped include footage of Mohandas Ghandi minutes before he was shot in 1948, and pictures of Hindus slashing their hands to sign their names on messages of congratulations for the nuclear tests.
