This is due to the concern that a young man felt during the film, where he got affected by the film taking it personally. This made the film board think about the consequences, that the audience might get affected after the film. People who suffer from heartbreak and trauma can get carried away by such sequence and hence Warner Bros. is yet to add a warning note for suicide as per the boards demand.
Bradley Cooper directorial starring the actor himself and Lady Gaga has set the audience heart and box office on fire. It is expected to bag multiple Oscars in the upcoming year and a lot more recognition that it deserves.
