Pakistan bans Naam Shabana after release!

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.

  • Doesn’t matter. I don’t want any Indian film to release in Pakistan, we don’t need revenue from there.
    Domestic and other overseas countries are enough for the revenues.

    @tiger I think Aamir has come long way from intolerance controversy. The way people accepted his movie Dangal last year is an example that at the end, people are expecting good film and works from actors not their political views. Though there are still some people who questions Aamir even now. But at the end, Aamir has trust of audience with him.

  • @12.08 very true.

    Dont know why Pakistani feels so uncomfortable with anything related to India. You dont want the flag? But can you hide it from audience that its not an Indian movie??? Probably the most retarded censor board any movie industry can boast of. Sad but true
