By now, ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion‘ have made all sorts of headlines of being the biggest blockbuster of all times across the world. But specifically in Singapore, the movie has gotten a very limited audience.

Reason being, the censor board has granted ‘Baahubali 2 : The Conclusion’ an ‘NC16’ certification, which means that the movie cannot be watched by anybody under the age of 16.

Pahlaj Nihalani, chairperson, Central Board of Film Certification said, “We granted Baahubali 2: The Conclusion a ‘UA’ with virtually no cuts. In Singapore, they found Baahubali too violent. The war scenes, especially of soldiers being beheaded, were taken to be excessively gruesome by their censor board. In many countries of Asia and Europe, more Bollywood films get ‘A’ certificate than we do in India.”

He says this variation is partly to do with culture and partly for practical reasons. “Our mythology and religious scriptures have a lot of violent images of rakshasas being beheaded, etc. So, our children grow up hearing these tales of violence. They are not scared by mythological mayhem. Also, in India censorship is about pacifying sentiments rather than doing the right things. If we cut one shot of a beheading we are branded anti-religious. If we shorten the duration of a kiss we are prudes. And if we delete a shot of boy masturbating another boy (in Moonlight) we are branded homophobic.”
