“The Censor Board has adjudged the film unsuitable for public viewing in its unaltered form,” the statement said. The film has already raked in $185 million worldwide.
“While we are committed to maintaining and protecting the vision of the director, we will, as always, respect the guidelines set by the board.”
The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) after having examined the film had asked for several scenes involving nudity to be blurred. “We wanted several scenes in ‘The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo’ to be blurred,” said JP Singh, regional officer (West), CBFC. “Bare bottom and bare-breast scenes are not allowed in India.”
