Malaysia’s Film Censorship Board banned the movie from cinemas, citing it would have to make so many cuts to racy scenes that there would be barely anything left to screen.

“This film contains too many scenes with too much… obscene content, and is not suitable for public screening,” board chairman Mohamad Zamberi Abdul Aziz told Agence France-Presse.

“We can see women’s breasts and men’s private parts. There are also erotic dances which are too much, and scenes (with drugs).”

Square Box Pictures, the film’s distributor in Malaysia has confirmed the ban in an Instagram post.

The statement shared on Insata post reads, “We regret to inform you that Hustlers movie release has been canceled as it has been banned in Malaysia. We deeply apologize for the inconveniences caused to our beloved followers, fans of the movie, media and partners”.
