Superstar Shahrukh Khan's much awaited Bollywood movie Ra.One has cleared the formalities of the Censor Board on Thursday, 13th October. Reports suggest that the Board has issued a clear 'U' Certificate to the superhero film with strict conditions that it should have clear disclaimer about the stunts at the beginning of the movie.
Shahrukh Khan and director Anubhav Sinha, who were present at the venue during the special screening of Ra.One for the Censors, wanted a 'U' certificate for the film. But the Board raised strong objections about Shahrukh's daring stunts in the movie. It reportedly raised serious concerns about the stunts influencing impressionable minds into emulating the derring-do.
The hero-imitation is growing more in recent years and there are several instances of fans causing themselves grievous damage while emulating their heroes. “Shahrukh's iconic status makes his aerial and ground-level superhero stunts in Ra.One even more inflammably imitable," the Mid-Day quotes a source as saying.
However, the Board has given 'U' Certificate to the film Ra.One after the filmmakers promised to adhere to its conditions. It has asked producer Shahrukh Khan to put a disclaimer to the effect that the stunts were computer-generated and should not be replicated by anyone.
