After Dangal facing controversy, while trying to field a release in Pakistan, yet another movie is feeling the heat.
Neeraj Pandey’s espionage thriller, Naam Shabana, has been stopped in theatres across the neighbouring country. In this case, it would seem that the Pakistani officials have realised that the movie is based on the theme of international terrorism, albeit after the film was released.
A source close to the development tells us, “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.”
Clearly, after having lifted the ban on Indian movies, a lot more stringent checks seem to now be in place for Indian movies to be screened in Pakistan....
