Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonam Kapoor starrer Veere Di Wedding gets banned in Pakistan
Bollywood film Veere Di Wedding, starring stars like Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonam Kapoor in a story of four girls, has been banned in Pakistan because of “vulgar dialogues and obscene scenes.”
Like Salman Khan’s Race 3, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonam Kapoor starrer Veere Di Wedding won’t see the light of day in neighbouring country, Pakistan. While Salman’s film was banned in response to the local film producers’ complains over facing stiff completion from the Indian market, the latter has been prohibited from releasing because of its adult content.
The film, that also stars Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania, has apparently been banned in the country because of “vulgar dialogues and obscene scenes.”
Danyal Gilani, Chairman, Central Board of Film Censors (CBFC), told IANS via social media: “Members of the CBFC unanimously decided to not allow the film for public exhibition in the cinemas as its content flouts the Censorship of Film Code 1980.”The movie was screened for the CBFC in Pakistan on Tuesday night.
All members unanimously came to a decision to ban Veere Di Wedding while the film’s distributors also withdrew their application to release it in Pakistan after witnessing its questionable content.
A senior member of the Distribution Club mentioned that before the screening, the board was unaware of the indecent substance within the film. “Thus, we withdrew our applications to distribute,” he said.
He continued, “We think the Sindh board was right to clear the film after making cuts. But we also agree with CBFC’s decision.”
