Here’s A List Of Words That The Censor Board Of India Has Banned
The leaked Censor Board notice disallows the usage of 30+ words in “any category of the [censor] certificate,” which includes movies, television, music, and live shows.
A few days ago, a list of words that are not to be used in any certification category was released by the Central Board of Film Certification to all its regional officers.
Among the words present are predictable English cuss words, as well as their Hindi counterparts. However, more ambiguously, the list goes on to ban words that showcase “violence against womans,” words which glorify boodshed, as well as any “double meaning kind of words.” The list also disallows use of the word “Bombay” to describe India’s commercial capital, which was renamed to Mumbai in 1996
