Pakistan has banned the theatrical screening of ‘Naam Shabana’, even though the film was passed by the country’s Censor Board. While no reason for the ban was given, there are reports that the film was banned due to its terrorism angle.
“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” a source close to the film said.
Last week, Aamir Khan decided not to release the industry’s biggest grosser ‘Dangal’ because the Pakistani Censor Board wanted the Indian National Anthem and National Flag to be edited out.
