Not every film has a smooth and secure release. Before it touches the screen, some have to deal with legal issues, public outcry, and even a ban. Some of the most contentious films are never released due to cultural or religious concerns.

Other nations, in addition to the Indian censor board, frequently refuse to clear specific Indian films in order to protect a community, maintain harmony, or preserve the culture of their society.
