The Indian censor board has their certain laws. A films with an A or adult certificate can’t be shown on TV.
The franchises like James Bond and the Avengers can effect the Bollywood’s own productions at the box office. James Bond’s franchise, “Spectre”, is going to be released on Friday with heavy cuts after censors objected the romantic encounters between Daniel Craig, and co-stars Monica Belluci and Lea Seydoux, by saying it as an inappropriate for the viewing public.
Now James Bond can make liberal use of his license to kill. But he’ll have to cut back on the kissing by exactly half.
The board has also rejected the “50 Shades of Grey”, the film based on E.L. James’s erotic novel, even after the studio cut every sex scene. The board said that the language used in the film was inappropriate and never released in India.
A source said that .“The committee which was to certify the film thought some of the kissing scenes were too long,” and asked Sony Pictures to cut the kissing scenes by 50 percent.
“The studio either had the choice to accept the cuts or apply for an A certificate, which significantly cuts down reach and exhibition.”
The India’s nationalist government control the Censor Board which has turned a disapproving eye on films with steamy sex scenes.
