Earlier, when certain countries in the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Jordan, banned the screening of Chloe Zhao’s sci-fi adventure drama, ‘Eternals’, because of the refusal of its makers to delete certain gay-themed scenes, the UAE had allowed the film’s release.

Although ‘Badhaai Do’ has no obvious expressions of same-sex love, as in the case of the ‘Eternals’ characters Ben and Phastos kissing each other, it clearly has an LGBTQ+ theme, which is not acceptable in the Middle East.

Meanwhile, earlier while talking about the film, actor Rajkummar Rao said, “The writing team has worked very hard on it, they have been working on the script for the last 2 years now. It had also gone through multiple drafts and a lot of people from the (LGBTQ) community were also involved in the script writing. So, it has been written in a very sensitive way even after keeping the entertainment part intact.”
