Not sure why the Film Censor board should be the carrier of morals of Indian adults? Just give it an Adult only rating and let the grown ups be responsible for their libido or lack of it.
Someone saying that bare bottoms and bare breasts are unacceptable for Indian audience is all nonsense. I am not advocating for such movies but if there is a movie like this and there is an audience for it, then so be it. Who is someone on the CBFC to decide what a person should watch or not?
The Hollywood film starring Daniel Craig about a journalist’s search for a woman missing for 40 years was due to be released on Feb 10, but it ran into problems with India’s Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
“Bare bottom and bare-breast scenes are not allowed in India,” J.P. Singh, an official at CBFC, told AFP.
“We objected to several scenes in ‘The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo’ and wanted them to be blurred.”
Sony Pictures in India acknowledged in a statement sent to AFP on Monday that it would not compromise on the content of the film, which has grossed $185 million worldwide.
“The Censor Board has adjudged the film unsuitable for public viewing in its unaltered form,” the statement said.
