In India the people can’t decide what’s dirty or clean for them, its the Censor Board who decide what kind of Movies we should watch. Any movie that has Sex and Religion involved in it, has to got through Censor Board’s Scissors.

The sad part is the Indian Censor Board not only considers sex scenes, it also even considers long kissing as dirty and inappropriate for Indian audience. So here is the list of films the desi audiences missed out on over the years.
