Love, Simon is a 2018 USA gay drama by Greg Berlanti.
Starring Katherine Langford, Nick Robinson and Jennifer Garner.
From the producers of The Fault in Our Stars comes the relatable and heartfelt coming-of-age film LOVE, SIMON. Everyone deserves a great love story, but for 17-year-old Simon, it's a bit complicated. The gay teenager hasn't come out yet, and
doesn't know the identity of the anonymous classmate he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues will be a hilarious, scary, life-changing adventure.
The film was banned by the film censors of the Central Board of Film Certification on the day of its release. The CBFC has said little so far beyond noting that the film was banned for gay content.
The film contains no explicit content although there is a kiss between the two lads.
In the UK the cinema release was passed 12A uncut for moderate sex references, infrequent strong language.
In the US the film was rated PG-13 for thematic elements, sexual references, language and teen partying
Update: Film censor says that the ban is not down to him

CBFC chairperson Prasoon Joshi has completely denied that the CBFC has banned on Love, Simon. He said that an adults-only CBFC 'A' certificate has been given to Love, Simon four months ago, on February 6, 2018 after 2 cuts described as minor.
Another source from the CBFC says, This is one more attempt to use the censor board to gain publicity for a film.
However it is has not been made clear an alternative reason for the film being pulled from cinema s at the last moment.
