"They just never made it in". Hardy, who aced the role of a villain in Dark Knight Returns, totally nailed the Mr India dialogue.
In an obvious attempt to save face, Hardy's co-star Riz Ahmed states in a joking demeanor, "If they didn't make it into the film, they weren't any good, bro".
The film's executive producer Matt Tolmach has poured cold water on rumours that the film's most shocking scenes were cut to ensure it would receive a PG-13 certificate in the US. Many fans hoped, and even assumed, that this film would carry an R rating, like Logan and Deadpool before it, in keeping with the dark, violent nature of the character. As of two weeks ago, the movie was tracking an opening between $60 million and $70 million, so maybe given the movie a PG-13 rating was a good idea.

The death toll, largely from the city of Palu , is expected to keep rising as areas cut off by the damage are reached. At Poboya, in the hills above Palu , volunteers had started burying bodies in a freshly dug mass grave .
"We only ever talked about this movie as being PG-13", Fleisher told Comicbook.com. It's not like we just wanted to make a family film. Is there an R-rated cut sitting there? We may be off the mark, but these comments lead us to believe that Tom Hardy has only just seen the final cut of Venom, realized it's a stinker and has chose to begin distancing himself from it. "What I've said in the past is that we wanted to push the violence to the hilt". Whether that's just Hardy's preferences showing through or a hint of something more complex behind the scenes is something we don't know yet, but it will be very interesting indeed to hear more about this after the world has seen the film.
