The Punjabi film ‘Toofan Singh’ has reportedly been refused a certificate for a release in India after it was deemed to violent.
According to Bombay Times, new CBFC chief, Prasoon Joshi objected to the film’s hero Ranjit Bawa adopting terrorist tactics to fight corruption in India.
A source from CBFC told the publication, “Toofan Singh is a terrorist, who goes on a rampage killing corrupt cops and politicians. And they’ve compared him to Bhagat Singh. The film is brutal and anarchic. We couldn’t empathise with its message of brute power, let alone grant it a censor certificate.”
‘Toofan Singh’ released in international markets, including the UK earlier this month and has been running without any issues.
