After the epic success of Bahubali 2 in India, they’re all set to release the film in different countries. But unfortunately, one country’s censor board gave them an A certificate for a really senseless reason. Want to know which country did this?
Well, it’s Singapore.
Yes, Singapore censor board gave them A certificate just because they think it is too violent to see. Yes, you heard it right. They think that it the film is too violent.
According to them, the film has many war scenes which are really wild and hence isn’t good for the audience under 16 years old.
Talking about this, Mr Pahlaj Nahalani said,
“We granted Baahubali 2 :The Conclusion a ‘UA’ with virtually no cuts. In Singapore, they found Baahubali 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.”
Talking about the culture and it’s difference, he said
“Responding to Baahubali 2 getting an ‘UA’ certificate (unrestricted public exhibition subject to parental guidance for children below the age of twelve) in India, Nihilani’s argument was, “Our mythology and religious scriptures have a lot of violent images of rakshasas being beheaded, etc. So, our children grow up hearing these tales of violence. They are not scared by mythological mayhem.”
Well, in India, it has already joined the 1000 crore group and the earnings are still counting. Undoubtedly, they’ve done really well job in India. But now, due to this N16 certificate, which means the film can’t be seen by under 16, the profits will definitely suffer in Singapore.
