Bollywood Films With U Certificate By CBFC
Raksha Bandhan To Pagglait: 6 Popular Bollywood Movies That Earned A ‘U’ Certification 

Your weekend watchlist is ready!

For the uninitiated, before a film is released in the theatres, a certification is issued by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). The certification broadly falls into four categories i.e. U for unrestricted public exhibition, A for content restricted to only adult viewership, U/A for unrestricted public exhibition but viewers below 12 years of age will need adult supervision, and lastly S, which is for a specific audience like scientists and doctors.  

 

While most Bollywood movies haven’t really been lucky in regards to clinching the U-certification, here’s a list of films that made the cut.
