The film hit a road-block when the Indian Censor Board denied a certification of the film citing inadequate permissions to shoot animal life. While the shots of animals in the wild passed the Censor Board's scrutiny, the objectionable scene was one of a snake in a cage.
Distributors Warner Bros Pictures India has now deleted the said objectionable scene of the snake, opening up the way for the film's release.
Its release was delayed pending a clearance certificate from the Animal Welfare Board of India validating that no animal was hurt or harmed during the shooting of the film. Produced by Fox Searchlight, the comedy was shot in large parts in the northern Indian state of Rajasthan.
