Default Should I age-restrict my short film?

Hey, what's up everybody

My new short film contains references to drug overdose and suicide - where the actor (almost) overdoses when he feels suicidal.

1) Should I age restrict this video on Youtube?
2) Does the Indian law have anything that would mandate me to age-restrict this video?

If the purpose is to discourage drug abuse, then I think young people should see how they might end up.

That's something you should ask of an entertainment lawyer in India.

If you feel that the contents of the video is not suitable for persons below a particular age you can age restrict the video on Youtube.

I wish to inform you that promotion of unlawful products is not allowed under Indian law. You may make a age related disclosure. Under Young Persons (Harmful Publications) Act, 1956 you may state that person below 18 years may be affected by viewing your video as may promote them to consume drugs and hence promote violation of law.
