It was reported earlier that Ek Tha Tiger has been banned in Pakistan because the govt thought that the film is anti Pakistan and shows ISI in bad light. But now it’s been confirmed that the film will not be banned in Pakistan.
When TOI, approached Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority spokesperson, he dismissed the reports and said, “,No,it isn’t correct. I’ve not seen the story or heard this kind of news. There’s no such letter issued by PEMRA. According to my knowledge, we’ve not issued any letter to any cable operator regarding this film.
” When Ek Tha Tiger director Kabir Khan heard the speculation that his film will be banned in Pakistan, he tweeted,”It’s distressing for Ek Tha Tiger to be regarded as an anti-Pakistan movie. But it is not unexpected. Look at the cheap jingoistic anti-Pakistan movies that have launched over the years. We cannot really blame them if they perceive Ek Tha Tiger as one such movie.”
