CBFC Orders Sony TV to Not Show Oscar Winning ‘The Danish Girl’

Sony Pictures Network’s channel, Sony Le PLEX HD, has been reportedly asked to drop the broadcast of the Oscar winning film The Danish Girl by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). According to sources close to the channel, CBFC has communicated to them that the film is unsuitable for viewing by Indian audiences below 18.
The Danish Girl, starring Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander, was to be aired on Sony Le PLEX on Sunday, 26 March. The film has Eddie playing Elbe, one of the first recipients of a sex reassignment surgery and it won an Oscar for Alicia in the Best Supporting Actress category last year.
