James Bond: Spectre Also Censored in India
We already reported last month that the new James Bond installment Spectre was censored for UK cinemas. In order to avoid the "15" in favor of the "12A" rating, cuts were made prior to the final BBFC submission. It's currently unknown whether this version is screened in other markets, as well.
Now, the Times of India announced that the film will also be cut in India's cinemas. The CBFC (Censor Board of Film Certification) had 4 demands for the distributor's desired rating. Apart from two instances of foul language ("idiot" instead of "asshole"; "bighead and cats" instead of "bastard and balls"), two kissing scenes were reduced by 50% in length.
