A screening of Zindagi Tamasha is being organized on March 16 for the Senate Committee on Human Rights to decide if the movie needs to be sent to the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) for approval.

According to details, on Wednesday the Senator of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar said that the committee has barred CII from reviewing the film, Zindagi Tamasha while directing the Central Board of Film Censors to provide the panel a copy of the movie for screening.

If the panel does not find the film objectionable, the release orders of the movie will be given “immediately”, said PPP senator.

The decision was taken during a meeting of the human rights committee, in which Danyal Gilani, chairman of the central censorship board, appeared before the panel.

“If we find something objectionable [in the film], we will forward it to the CII,” Khokhar said while talking to reporters.

“According to reports so far, there is nothing objectionable in the movie,” he added.

Khokhar, in a tweet said, the committee was surprised to find that the film was cleared twice but still banned.

Khokhar further added that the committee will “not come under anyone’s pressure” and that the “parliament will exercise its authority”.

“We should not come under pressure of those parties who held Islamabad hostage twice,” he said hinting towards Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP), who had raised objections over the movie.
