Another Indian movie banned in Pakistan

Another Indian movies banned in Pakistan

Naam Shabana starring Akshay Kumar has apparently been banned by Pakistan’s censor board, as Pakistani officials took a dim view of the Neeraj Pandey directorial.

The Pakistani authorities seemed fine with the film. But a day after the film released, they woke up to the fact that the theme of terrorism could reflect badly on Pakistan.

Earlier, Raees was also banned in Pakistan as it showed Muslims in “negative light”. Raees makers, especially director Rahul Dholakia, had expressed disappointment for the same.

Clearly, after having lifted the ban on Indian movies, a lot more strict checks seem to now be in place for Indian movies to be screened in Pakistan.
