Despite HUM Network linking a distribution deal with the Indian media house B4U Motion pictures for the release of “Bin Roye”, the Maharashtra State in India has banned the movie for release in its cities.

Seemingly, the movie has been slated for a ban from the cinemas because it is a film made in Pakistan.

According to Indiatoday, B4U took the decision to ban Bin Roye due to the spree of threats issued by Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS).

The movie wing of MNS had warned of wrecking the cinemas in the state if Pakistan’s Bin Roye was given a release permit.

Consequently, B4U immediately notified the ban on the movie to steer clear of the the threats issued by the MNS.
