Shah Rukh Khan
's recently released film 'Raees
' is facing a new roadblock. The film that was slated to release in Pakistan has been banned there. Reason? The censor board in our neighboring country has an objection to various scenes following which they have banned the release of the film.
The distributor of Bollywood films in Pakistan, Satish Anand says, "There was a message from the Board banning exhibition of Raees in Pakistan and the reason given was 'distortion of true spirit of Islam'. [That] Content [is] objectionable for our territory."
Director Rahul Dholakia
says, "I am yet to receive a letter from the Pak censor board, but I am shocked by the decision. The film has released in several Muslim- dominated countries like the UAE, Oman, Bahrain, etc. I think this ban will lead to rampant piracy since people across the border will definitely watch it."
On the other hand, Hrithik Roshan's 'Kaabil' has become the first Bollywood film to release in Pakistan after the month-long ban by their exhibitors.
