Black Panther continues to shatter multiple records at the box office and is no short of receiving praises from celebrities and even from the former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.
The standalone film has mostly been applauded by critics and fans for its representation of black and African culture through the fictional world Wakanda. While it definitely had a strong impact on the Black community, it seems to have also had the same effect on the Indian community.
Many fans have been sharing their reactions on Twitter after experiencing the movie in theatres. Some have also pointed out that the film shares a message that connects with the Indian audience as well.
Black Panther also turned a lot of heads in India when fans realized that the movie had an interesting reference/Easter egg. Pursue News broke the news first and also reported that the reference was “muted” in India by the Censor Board.
Fans have been sharing disconcert on Twitter and have been questioning CBFC India (Central board of film certification) on the reason behind the removal. All tweets can be found below.
It’s interesting to see a comic book movie make an impact not only the black culture but also on other communities such as India. This is certainly the first time a fictional film that has received such immense support from people all around the world.
Recently, Marvel’s Stan Lee also praised the film and its director cum cast on its phenomenal success. More are expected to come pouring its way as the film continues to dominate at the box office.
Fans will once again get to see Chadwick Boseman reprise as Black Panther in Avengers: Infinity War. several others characters such as Shuri are also confirmed to make an appearance in the threequel.

Is there a version of #Wakanda in India? What would an India look like without invasions, conversions and colonization? Just some thoughts after watching the best Marvel movie ever made and a tipping point in global culture. #BlackPanther

Wakanda is a country that I am happy to lead my life if I ever have to decide living outside India. When fiction is done properly with creativity, we get #BlackPanther where ideas never seem like a Cheat code to easy blockbuster. #BlackPantherMovie 👍🏻 pic.twitter.com/ijIAe1LY5v

Sooner or later, I expect a WhatsApp forward on how India is also secretly Wakanda. Certified by UNESCO. #BlackPanther

My heart swole when I heard the reference to Hanuman in #BlackPanther
It's a shame Indians in India won't be able to hear it because of politics.
