The NCW stated that the Bharatiya Stree Shakti has filed a complaint stating that the film’s trailer contains content “depicting women and youngsters in undesirable ways”.
The trailer of the movie was released on January 10, 2022, and received heavy backlash from social media users and activists for the use of violent action and vulgarity by teenage kids. It was released without any censorship across social media and did not have any restrictions for underage viewers. However, the trailer was removed on January 13, 2022, following the controversy.
“The teaser that was released on social media and other platforms was filtered. We have been limiting and focusing it to keep it to 18+ consumers, the age restriction is plainly stated in our YouTube teaser and we couldn’t keep track of anything because we don’t have authority over these platforms and anyone may download and distribute anything,” said Shreyans Hirawat.
