After the recent terror attacks on Indian soldiers in Uri, relations between India and Pakistan seem to be deteriorating. While political parties have threatened to stall films with Pak actors in them, the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPAA) has banned Pakistani artistes from working in the country, till normalcy returns.
In such a situation, a movie set against the backdrop of Pakistan, or having a character based in the country could possibly run into troubled waters too. One such film reportedly is Sonakshi Sinha’s Noor, which is based on Pakistani author Saba Imtiaz’ novel, Karachi, You’re Killing Me! about a Pakistani journalist.
Sonakshi, who’s playing the protagonist in the movie, has denied that she’s playing a character from the neighbouring country. “All I can say is that I’m not playing a Pakistani journalist in the film. It’s based on a book, which is written by a Pakistani author. The story has been adapted with a Mumbai backdrop,” said the actress in an event.
Noor also stars Purab Kohli and Kanan Gill, among others, and is set to release on April 7, next year....
