Key scenes in the movie, including the main character’s rape and her subsequent torture of her rapist, were asked to be removed from the film.
A statement from Sony Pictures India was released:
“Sony Pictures will not be releasing The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in India. The Censor Board has adjudged the film unsuitable for public viewing in its unaltered form and, while we are committed to maintaining and protecting the vision of the director, we will, as always, respect the guidelines set by the Board.”
