Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘The Attacks of 26/11’, has been banned from theatrical screening in UAE by the Dubai censor board. However, the Bahrain and Oman governments have cleared the film.
A source close to the film based on the Mumbai attacks in 2008 says “It is a well known fact that the 10 terrorists from the terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba from Pakistan had attacked Mumbai, and that is something that the Dubai censors have been shying away from showing”
The 2008 attacks on Mumbai, which left 164 people dead and 308 injured, took place on the night of 26th November .
In the film, Nana Patekar plays a joint commissioner of police, while Sanjeev Jaiswal will be seen as terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab.
The Attacks of 26/11 releases in theatres worldwide tomorrow.
