Kissa Kursi Ka (1978): When the film hit the theaters, the prints were confiscated and burned at the Maruti factory in Gurgaon. The reason- the film was a political satire aimed at the Gandhi family and especially at the maverick Sanjay Gandhi who was behind the Maruti car project. After the Emergency, a commission was set-up and Sanjay Gandhi was found guilty and sentenced to a month in Tihar Jail.
Satyam Shivam Sundaram: When released in India, it caused much controversy over its erotic content, the semi-clad Zeenat Aman and the much-talked about sex scene between Zeenat and Shashi Kapoor.
Sins (2005): Directed by veteran journalist Vinod Pande, the film is a take on the prevailing trend of God-con men. However, it attracted a lot of criticism from the Christian community as it depicted a Catholic priest being sexually involved with a young woman. The film was banned because of the negative portrayal of Catholicism and sexually explicit scenes.
