Vijay’s Thuppaki released several months ago and now that court has ordered that the Censor Board should have certified it with A! This sounds strange but the bitter truth is that the court wants certain scenes from Thuppaki to be deleted and the Censor Board to re-certify it, albeit, this time with an A!
Thuppaki was certified with a U and the film went on to become a huge hit last year. But following Vishwaroopam’s case, the Thuppaki matter also came up for hearing before the court as some Muslim groups protested against its content hurting their sentiments.
It may be noted here that the Jayam Ravi starrer Adhi Bhagwan is also facing a similar situation now with some Hindu groups urging for a special screening to ensure that there is nothing against their religion.
