'Rambo: Part Ii' Banned In India

February 20, 1986| From Associated Press

BOMBAY, India — India has banned the U.S. box-office hit "Rambo: First Blood, Part II" because of what it says is the movie's anti-Soviet and anti-Vietnamese content, an official said Tuesday.

"The film was seen last week by the examination committee of the Censor Board and banned outright," Anna Dani, regional officer of the Censor Board, said.

"It could lead to straining of friendly relations with a foreign state," Dani added, quoting from the rules of India's Central Board of Film Certification.

India has close ties with the Soviet Union, its major arms supplier.
