Good news for Quentin Tarantino fans. The filmmaker's ninth film, 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood' -which is set to release in India on August 15- has been cleared by the Censor Board with minimal cuts. 

According to media reports, the film has a run time of around 164 minutes and has been rated ‘A’ by the CBFC. The censor board has reportedly not removed the multiple 'F Bombs' that are an integral part of any of Tarantino's films. Instead, it has beeped out every usage of the word ‘a**’. 

The film, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt in central roles, is one of the most anticipated films of the season. It will clash at the box office with Akshay Kumar’s 'Mission Mangal' and John Abraham’s 'Batla House'. 

The film narrates the story of a washed-up actor, played by DiCaprio, and his stuntman, played by Pitt, whose personal stories intersect with the life of actress Sharon Tate, who moves in next door.

Tate was the wife of film director Roman Polanski and was one of the victims of the infamous murders carried out by the Manson Family. While the film will focus on DiCaprio and Pitt, the murder- which subsequently changed Hollywood and its hippie culture- forms a major part of the story.
