Alia Bhatt’s Raazi banned from screening in Pakistan

Here’s a rather disappointing news for all Alia Bhatt fans in Pakistan. The starlet’s upcoming project, Raazi has been banned from releasing in Pakistan. The film was slated to release all across on 11th May.

The reason being given for Raazi not releasing in Pakistan happens to be the film’s controversial content. No distributor has agreed to purchase the film.

“It is disappointing to see that films on controversial subjects are being produced in India time and again,”  expressed a senior distribution company official.

Adding further, the official mentioned, “All our distributors are well aware about Alia’s role in Raazi and so, no one is willing to purchase the film. Patriotism is another reason for distributors not being pushed about buying the film. Indian producers should know that all our distributors have unanimously decided to boycott such controversial films.”

Co produced by  Vineet Jain and Karan Johar, Raazi has been made under the banner of Dharma Productions. The film is an adaptation of Harinder Sikka’s novel ‘Calling Sehmat’, and features Alia as an Indian spy  who marries a Pakistani man played by Vicky during the Indo-Pak war of 1971. The film has been shot in different cities of India.
