Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible Faces CBFC’s Scissors Due To Misinterpreted Kashmir References

Published on 2 August, 2018 at 11:48 am By

Kashmir issue has always been a sensitive discussion for India not only because of an extensive history but also due to the ongoing tensions in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Apparently, the climax of the highly-appreciated Hollywood film Mission: Impossible – Fallout starring superstar Tom Cruise was about to be shot in the beautiful Kashmir Valley. However, the crew was denied shooting in the Kashmir region, so they had to substitute New Zealand in place of Kashmir. But there still had to be many references of Kashmir in the film due to the plot of the story.

In a surprising turn of events, the version of Mission: Impossible – Fallout that released in Indian theatres had no mentions of Kashmir and the reason is quite agreeable. Incidentally, there were noticeable cuts in the final version of the film and there were no visible title cards that identified Kashmir location that the Tom Cruise film had earlier.

 

 

Apparently, the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) Chief Prasoon Joshi advised the filmmakers of Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible to either rectify or remove all the references of Kashmir in the film. Shockingly, the film had also referred to Kashmir as “India-controlled Kashmir”.

 

 

According to the CBFC Chief, the map shown in the film “misinterprets the boundaries of Jammu and Kashmir”. While deciding to scissor the particular scenes in the Tom Cruise film, Prasoon Joshi said:

“We asked them to correct this and mention Kashmir as ‘the Indian State of Jammu & Kashmir’. The integrity and sanctity of our nation’s boundaries cannot and must not be compromised on for the sake of cinematic entertainment. They had also referred to Kashmir as India-controlled Kashmir which we have asked them to correct as the ‘Indian State of Jammu and Kashmir”.

 

 

Evidently, the team of the film decided on getting away with all the Kashmir references completely from the film so that the technicalities in the film has nothing to do with Kashmir. But mentions of Nubra Valley and Siachen Glacier in Ladakh have not been deleted. Moreover, the brief mention of the Indian Army at the action sequence in the climax has also been kept intact.

 

 

Nevertheless, the decision of CBFC grabbed the attention of the Twitterati as they responded with a mixed bag of opinions. From slamming CBFC for their ‘unnecessary’ cuts to appreciating their action, take a look at some of the best Twitter responses:

 

 

 

Well!



 

 

People trolled the movie as well!

 

 

Censoring Kashmir doesn’t solve the problem!

 

 

Curiosity is generated!

 

 

Sarcasm is shouting!

 

 

Shame!
