Thiruvananthapuram: The Central Board of Film Certification has clarified that the version of 'Churuli', directed by Lijo Jose Pellissery, released on SonyLiv, is not certified by the Board. The Board came up with the explanation after the ‘obscene’ dialogues in the film became controversial.

The Board had issued an 'A Certificate' (restricted to adult audiences) to 'Churuli' after suggesting necessary changes in the film. The certificates are given according to the Cinematograph Act 1952, Certification Rules 1983 and the guidelines of the Union government. However, Parvathi V, CBFC Regional Officer, said in a press release that the film was released without any of the suggested changes.

The certificate (No. DIL/3/6/2021-THI) was issued on November 18, 2021. However, certificates are necessary only to screen movies in theatres. It does not apply to OTT platforms.
