‘Fifty Shades of Gray’ has failed to get a clearance for release from the Censor Board. Shravan Kumar, CEO of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), said the makers of the film have the option to advance against the choice.
Mr. Kumar said the makers initially approached the CBFC in January yet then they rescheduled the examination twice, Citing to inaccessibility of content.
“It is out of the way for us because certification happens on first-come-first-serve basis. We at last saw the film for examination on February 28 and the board of trustees ordered its report and sent it to them. Their answer is anticipated,” Kumar told PTI.
“It [the movie] did not pass however it is not uncommon as mainstream movies don’t get freedom in the first step, people have the choice to strive for a modifying panel’s assessment. The subject of the film is such that it couldn’t be cleared in the first review. In the second step a more extensive council will survey the film,” Mr. Kumar said.
The motion picture, an adoption of E.L. James’ novel set of three, stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan.
