The Tom Cruise and Henry Cavill starrer Mission Impossible-FallOut has been receiving rave reviews from both audience and critics alike. However, the makers of the action-adventure removed the reference to Kashmir from the film after the CBFC objected to it.
There are several references to Kashmir in the film which was removed from the Indian release of the film after CBFC objected to it. The chairman of CBFC, Prasoon Joshi says “The map of India shown in the film misrepresented the boundaries of Jammu & Kashmir. We, at the CBFC, advised the applicants for Mission Impossible: Fallout to either rectify or remove the map“. He also asked the makers to change the reference from ‘India-controlled Kashmir’ to ‘the Indian State of Jammu & Kashmir’.
Christopher McQuarrie, Director of the film says “We would have loved to come to India to shoot the film. We couldn’t shoot the aerial sequence (helicopter chase sequence) in India. It was a little too crazy. So, we ended up in New Zealand. But I scouted India extensively and I would love to come to India and shoot a film”.
Meanwhile, Mission Impossible-FallOut is doing extremely well at the Indian box office. The word-of-mouth reviews have been excellent which is ensuring superb business at the ticket window.
