Last Monday, the censor board offered Universal Pictures a ‘UA’ certification after verbal cuts and two scenes were chopped off. When asked about the multiple cuts in The Fate of the Furious, CBFC chairperson Pahlaj Nihalani explained, “We gave them an option of an ‘A’ with no cuts. They preferred ‘UA’ with cuts. Also let me remind you that the British censor board doesn’t entertain cusswords and profanities at all. They were shown a different version of the film with all the abuses removed. In India we are supposed to hear all the expletives and pass them too, if possible.”
