The film shows everything from Las Vegas to the Burj Khalifa being annihilated. But according to a Mumbai Mirror report, the makers decided to avoid Indian monuments because, "Well, Indians are too touchy."

“Keeping the sensitivities of all the religious groups and other activists in mind, the makers were asked to not shoot in India or portray any prominent monuments being damaged,” an unnamed studio source told Mumbai Mirror.

The news comes less than a year after the censors asked the makers of Pixels to remove a scene which shows the Taj Mahal being destroyed.
