Pakistan has banned Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s latest movie, Raees, its distributor in Pakistan says.
The film, which also stars Pakistani actor Mahira Khan, was scheduled to open across Pakistan on 2 February.
The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has not issued an official statement on why it banned the film, reports the BBC.
However, a CBFC official told BBC Urdu one reason was that the crime thriller “depicts Muslims as criminals and terrorists”.
Some of the scenes were also “offensive to a particular sect”, the official added.
