The Censor Board of India has frequently been in the news in light of its traditionalist standpoint, and it has often been debated whether this behavior of results in any loss to the world of movies or not. Several big movies have faced a hard time in getting the approval of the censor board of India. And this particularly applies to several western films as well which are more into employing explicitly expressive scenes. While many films are finally able to pass the censor test, there are some that don’t turn out as lucky and end up getting censored or banned in the country altogether. And here are 10 of them.
1. Fifty Shades of Grey
This movie performs amazingly at the international box office but out official don’t allow this to release in India.
2. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
The express scenes that portrayed rape and torment prompted the film getting banned in India.
3. Dirty Grandpa
This film was not allowed to be released as the film’s ‘grandpa’ was a lusty old man – and that’s just not acceptable.
. Magic Mike XXL
So, here’s a movie that was about male stripping. Well, at least the censor board is not sexist about their decisions – they are just as conservative when it comes to male skin show as they are with female skin show!
5. Get Hard
Now, here’s an example of just how weird the Censor Board has become – days before its premiere, WB decided to simply withdraw their movie’s India release because they were afraid of the kinds of cuts the board would invariably ask them to make, if they ever wish to see their movie go on the Indian cinema
6. Blue Jasmine
The Censor Board demands that each time a character LIGHT a cigarette, a message should be set up on screen, cautioning against it. In any case, the chief, Woody Allen, declined to do as such with Blue Jasmine, and that prompted the motion picture not being discharged in India.
7. Kama Sutra: A Tale Of Love
The ‘India is the origin of Kama Sutra’ did not impress the board members who did not allow the film to go on the screen. It was, however, later released with lots of cut of nudity.
The film depicted the social challenges that a widow faces. However, even during its shooting, it faced strong opposition from protestors, and the same ensued when it went to the censor board.
9. Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom
The movie depicted Hinduism in the negative light.
10. The Da Vinci Code
Because the film represented Christianity in the negative light, there was a huge complaint from the Christians in the country to ban it, which was finally done.
