No ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Because We Are A Conservative Country

Government censors have said they will not allow the big-screen adaptation of erotic novel ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ to be shown in cinemas, a decision most had anticipated in the largely conservative country.

The chief executive of the Central Board of Film Certification, Shravan Kumar, declined to say why the panel refused to approve the film adaptation, but said Universal Pictures, the Comcast Corp unit that released the film, could appeal against the decision.

A Universal Pictures source familiar with the review process said the board had objected to some of the film’s dialogues, even after the studio made voluntary edits to the film to tone down its sex scenes and removed all nudity.
