Not long ago, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) was severely condemned by many movie goers and fans when instructions were passed on to omit most of the lip-lock scenes from Spectre, the latest of Bond movies, before releasing it in India.
When everyone thought that CBFC is at its unbending best, Dhanush's Thanga Magan gets away with a clean 'U' certificate sans any major cuts.
This news has come across as a baffler to many as it is speculated that the 'family entertainer' has a couple of steamy lip-locks between Dhanush and Amy Jackson.
Interestingly, a one minute 36 seconds song video from the movie, which was released after acquiring the 'U' certificate, has a lip-lock scene, which is convincing enough for the CBFC members to award Thanga Magan a U/A certificate.
In recent times, films featuring prominent stars are being awarded with 'U' certificates, irrespective of its content.
