Yet another day and yet another Bollywood film which will not see daylight in Pakistan. After Padmaavat and Padman, Sidharth Malhotra starrer Aiyaari has also been banned from releasing in the neighbouring country.
Aiyaari is already up on the silver screen today.
Aiyaari has already been under the knife once before as well when the Ministry of Defence suggested some modifications after the special screening of the film. Even the Central Board of certification approved of it in the second go.
Satish Anand, the man who was to distribute the movie in Pakistan, took to social media and announced, “The film is banned. Its content was disapproved.”
Looks like Pakistan is not a big fan of Neeraj pandey. The director’s earlier films like Baby and Naam Shabana were also refused theatre space in Pakistan as they were based on intelligence agencies on the chase for terrorists.
Neeraj pandey’s Aiyaari deals with two army officers, Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee, and highlights the corruption within the system.
