Director Refuses to Cut 'Girl With Dragon Tattoo' for India Release


Rooney Mara, Daniel Craig


Mumbai-based Sony Pictures India announced that the action thriller starring Rooney Mara will not open in India theaters due to some 'unsuitable' scenes.

David Fincher refuses to cut his movie "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)" for India release. India's Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) demanded that the director cut some scenes which make the film "unsuitable for public viewing in its unaltered form".

These scenes include the lovemaking sessions between main characters, played by Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig, a lesbian scene between Mara and a woman she meets at a bar, a scene where Mara is raped and tortured, and another torture scene in which Mara pays a revenge. According to a spokesperson from Sony Pictures, CBFC specifically asked the nudity scenes to be cut and not blurred like the protocol.

"Sony Pictures will not be releasing The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in India. The Censor Board has adjudged the film unsuitable for public viewing in its unaltered form and, while we are committed to maintaining and protecting the vision of the director, we will, as always, respect the guidelines set by the Board," said a statement released by Mumbai-based Sony Pictures India. The film was supposed to open on February 10.
