Mansha Pasha questions the country’s censorship policy over the fictional narrative of film making, which mostly ends up facing restrictions in Pakistan. 

The Laal Kabootar starlet is upset with limited narratives, unlimited restrictions in Pakistan after coming to know that Bollywood filmmaker Sanjay Bhansali is working on a new project based on a story from Lahore’s Heera Mandi.

Taking it to social media, in a series of Tweets, Mansha Pasha shared her thoughts.

“India is making a film on Lahore and the infamous Heera Mandi of yesteryears. Because we live in a country where the fictional narrative is often censored and everyone keeps arguing about what is or isn’t “morally acceptable” fiction, others make most of the opportunity taking up the stories that are native to our country, brand them and sell them to the rest of the world. In the end, what will be left will be our stories told from someone else’s mouth. Sad,” she wrote.

As being reported, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next project will explore Heera Mandi’s hidden culture, the infamous Lahore’s red-light area.
