All those who were eagerly waiting for the screening of Raees in Pakistan are now in for a major disappointment. The latest news is that Mahira Khan’s dream Bollywood debut will not hit the theaters of the nation as it has been banned.

A report by Dawn reveals that the censor board has decided today, on Monday that the movie should not be screened in Pakistan.

A source told the newspaper:

“the content undermines Islam, and a specific religious sect, [while also] portraying Muslims as criminals, wanted persons and terrorists.”

The release of the movie has forever been embroiled in controversies. Earlier, Raees faced major threats from India’s MNS party as it featured Pakistani celebrity, Mahira Khan. Consequently, she was barred from promoting her 1st Bollywood movie in India.

It was expected that Raees will hit Pakistani cinemas when Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif decided to begin the screening of Bollywood movies in Pakistan.

The PM formed a committee in order to clear Indian films through censor board and have them screened across cinemas in the country.

Meanwhile, Hrithik Roshan’s and Yami Gautam’s thriller Kaabil is running successfully all over Pakistan.
