Bajirao Mastani Movie Banned in Pakistan
The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) of Pakistan has banned Bajirao Mastani Movie in pakistan. The CBFC has not allowed the film to be screened, so far.
Mobasher Hasan, chairman of the CBFC, told The Express Tribune the reason behind the decision. “Firstly, the film is in Hindi and our ordinance does not allow Hindi films to be screened,” he said. “Secondly, it is a historical drama that is indirectly against Islam and Muslims,” he further added.
Where the CBFC has not cleared the Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone-starrer for release, the censor board of Punjab has cleared the film without any cuts. “While it has a few intimate scenes, it remains a historic film at large with a few lessons in history, so it has been passed uncut,” revealed a section officer of the provincial board.
