Pakistani Censor Board finds Anushka Sharma's NH10 suitable for all ages, unlike Indian Censor BoardBollywood actress-turned-producer Anushka Sharma must be on cloud nine, as her maiden production NH10 has hit the screens and has also earned a whopping Rs 8 crore in its opening weekend. Being a small budget film, with mostly new faces, the movie has managed to win the hearts of the audience.
The film may haven't gone down well with Indian Censor Board but Pakistani Censor Board has found the film suitable for all age groups, but much like Indian Censor Board, they have also ordered for removal of all the expletives along with some reduction of the violence and still passed with a 'U' certificate.
As quoted by DNA, sources reveal, "They've asked for the removal of expletives, like 'bh***i ke', 'behenc**d', 'g***d', 'gh***a', 'r***d' . Interestingly the list of words asked to be deleted by the Pakistani censor board is almost the same as their Indian counterpart. They've also reduced some of the violence and then passed the film for all ages."
NH10 shows a mirror to our nation, as it takes up the subject of crime against women and honour killings. The film gives a new definition to women empowerment. Despite, being a near-to-real life experience, Indian Censor Board has chopped much in the film and released it after 9 cuts with 'A' certificate, which means it is only meant for adults. This decision of Censor Board has been a topic of debate in India as the parts that have been chopped are need of the film.
Nh10, which released on March 13, stars Anushka Sharma, Neil Bhoopalam along with Darshan Kumar and Deepti Naval.
