Mumbai: The much awaited movie Mulk had been released on Friday. But the shocking news revealed about the film is ,the movie is banned in Pakistan.

According to the sources, this is not the first time that the Indian movies had been banned in Pakistan. Earlier, Veere di Wedding,Raazi and PadMan amongst others had to face the hurdle due to their objectionable content, by the censor board of Pakistan.

Danyal Gilani, Chairman, Pakistan’s Central Board of Film Censors said, “Members of the CBFC unanimously decided not to approve the trailer of Mulk as its contents flout the Censorship of Film Code, 1980.”

In response to the ban, the director of the movie, Anubhav Sinha penned down the letter to the CBFC of Pakistan that raised a question" why the censors in Pakistan are not letting the citizens watch a film “that talks about co-existence”.

The makers of Mulk released a statement in which co-producer Deepak Mukut said, “We are disturbed by this prejudiced verdict and it’s such an irony because our film talks about this very prejudice. We urge the Pakistani Censor Board to reconsider their decision. They will realise how essential it is to the well-being of the human race across the world”.

The movie failed to attract the audience to th etheaters in India till now, and is lagging behind Irfaan Kahn starrer Karwaan's first day collection.
