“CDs and DVDs of the film have also been banned in Islamabad. The company has taken a similar stance on this issue and will not go-ahead with its release,” the newspaper quoted the representative as saying. The Neeraj Pandey film was released in India Friday with critics calling it an “edge-of-the-seat thriller”.
The movie revolves around an undercover unit, formed to keep an eye on the movements of terrorist groups and to nix their plans to disrupt peace and harmony. The film also stars Rana Daggubati, Danny Denzongpa, Anupam Kher and Taapsee Pannu. And from across the border, the film features Pakistani actor Mikaal Zulfiqar and Rasheed Naz. The film, which was set to release Jan 23 across Pakistan, has been removed from the websites of cinemas in Karachi, which has added to the speculation of film's screening.
