S S Rajamouli directorial film Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has been smashing all records at the box office.
Not just in India, the much-anticipated film has also garnered an unprecedented response globally. Thanks to all the fans, the film even etched its name in the history by becoming the first ever Indian film to cross Rs 1000 crore mark.
Let’s not forget that the credit also goes to the Indian censor board who gave ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ the clearance with a U/A certificate.
It’s refreshing to hear that the Indian CBFC played cool and cleared the film sans any cuts. But looks like, the film is having a tough time abroad.
According to a report filed by DNA, the censor board in Singapore has granted the ‘NC 16’ certification to ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’, which means the film has been barred from any viewership under the age of 16.
The report has quoted the Indian censor board chief Pahlaj Nihalani saying, “We granted Baahubali 2 : The Conclusion a ‘UA’ with virtually no cuts. In Singapore, they found it too violent. The war scenes, specially of soldiers being beheaded, were taken to be excessively gruesome by their censor board. In many countries of Asia and Europe more Bollywood films get ‘A’ certificate than we do in India.”
