Deadpool will release in India Friday, timed with its U.S. release date, with some cuts ordered by India’s censor board. The title, which has been granted an A certificate, is distributed here by Fox Star Studios.
A report in the DNA newspaper said seven edits were ordered, and quoted censor board chief Pahlaj Nihalani as saying, “We have made very general cuts.” THR reached out for comment from FSS.
Meanwhile, the film’s premiere showing took place Thursday evening. Deadpool will open in over 800 screens in English including dubbed versions in Hindi, Tamil and Telegu.
As reported earlier, Deadpool was denied permission to screen in China due to its violence, nudity and graphic language
Indian censors often order cuts in Hollywood films for similar reasons, sometimes resulting in more family-friendly versions of the originals.
Recently, James Bond title Spectre saw its kissing scenes shortened while audio cuts prohibited 007 from uttering some words considered vulgar. The film was cleared with a U/A rating which sparked a Twitter backlash resulting in the satirical hashtag #SanskariJamesBond (Righteous James Bond).
