I try and keep emotion out of my edit room. If Im going to miss a scene then I wont edit it out but if snipping something works better for the film and makes the film move smoothly then I have no qualms in cutting it. In Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara I edited out a scene between Hrithik and Katrina. It was a conversation towards the climax where Katrinas character asks Hrithik to come away with her to Morocco. I also chopped out one of Farhans scene where he calls up his father (played by Naseeruddin Shah) and a woman picks up the phone so he disconnects the call. I felt both these scenes were not helping the pace of the film,so out they went.
