Not long ago, we had reported that in a shocking move, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had blurred out portions in the recent Christian Bale and Matt Damon release, Ford V Ferrari. Several viewers and also actor Farhan Akhtar among others expressed their disappointment over scenes where alcohol bottles and glasses were blurred out. Although, a few days ago ago CBFC chairman Prasoon Joshi clarified that it wasn't a CBFC decision and that filmmakers had themselves blurred out these portions.

Farhan Akhtar had taken to Twitter to comment on the blurred scenes and said, "The day is not far when they’ll just have the script read out in theatres. Why the Indian adult is treated like a delinquent who can’t think for him/herself or tell right from wrong is beyond me!!"

Speaking to PTI, he said, "This is to clarify once and for all that CBFC never asked the makers of Ford vs Ferrari to blur any shots in the film. I am disappointed with those who propagated false news that CBFC has asked for blurring shots in Ford vs Ferrari."
"The blurring was done voluntarily by the makers and has nothing to do with CBFC," Joshi added again. Ford V Ferrari: CBFC Blurs Alcohol Glasses and Bottles From Matt Damon and Christian Bale Starrer.
