He tried to pass off the ludicrous censorship as at least better than in China where the film was banned:

We have made very general cuts. If you look at what has happened to Deadpool in China, it was apparently banned because any number of cuts was seen to hamper the storyline of the film. I can assure you the cuts we’ve requested in no way affect the storytelling.

The CBFC cuts were:

  • Several eferences to male and female reproductive organs (‘cock’, ‘cunt’) have been removed.
  • A love-making scene has been shortened
  • Shots of a head being blown off have been cut.
  • A hand being cut off have been removed.
  • Nudity has been removed from a strip club scene.
