The ban on "Fifty Shades of Grey" in India has not gone down well with the movie buffs of the nation. Now, they have started downloading the pirated copies of the Hollywood movie from torrents sites on the internet.
The Indian censor board on Thursday, 6 March, banned "Fifty Shades of Grey" over explicit content of the movie. The Universal Pictures had deleted some of the scenes from the original version, anticipating troubles that it could face from the board.
The Universal Pictures had chopped off all the nude parts and toned down on the sex scenes in "Fifty Shades of Grey". However, even that version failed to get the nod of the board officials.
However, chief executive of the Central Board of Film Certification Shravan Kumar said that the Universal Pictures can appeal the decision.
We have to note that India is not the only nationto have banned the movie as Malaysia, Indonesia and Kenya have also done the same.
Meanwhile, those who were hoping to see "Fifty Shades of Grey" in theatres after its release in India are extremely disappointed by the development. They have now opted to download the film from torrent sites as there is still uncertainty over its future here.
Many on Twitter have expressed that the only option left with them is to find torrents. Below, we bring you some comments by Indian movie buffs:
"Who cares!! We have torrent sites RT @VineethJose: 'Fifty shades of grey' movie banned in India ;)"
"Now the sites are going to be busy with people scurrying to download!! lol"
