Salman Khan to visit Pakistan after ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ banned

Bollywood actor Salman Khan and Ek Tha Tiger’s director Kabir Khan decided to fly down to Pakistan. Soon after news came in that Ek Tha Tiger promo has been banned in Pakistan and the movie wouldn’t be launched in neighboring country, Salman Khan and the film director Kabir Khan made a decision to fly down to Pakistan, India media reported on Wednesday.

As per a letter issued by the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority to all satellite television channels and cable networks a week ago, Ek Tha Tiger, set for world launch on August 15, is “reportedly based on the activities of ISI and RAW. When asked about it, Kabir told Mirror, “It’s distressing for Ek Tha Tiger to be recognized as an anti-Pakistan movie. But it isn’t shocking. Look at the cheap jingoistic anti-Pakistan movies that have launched over the years. We can’t really blame them if they watch Ek Tha Tiger as one such movie.”

About Salman and his visit to the country, Kabir added, “Neither Salman nor I’ve ever visited Pakistan. So why not? We’re ready to do anything that’s required to make Pakistanis feel that our venture isn’t against them. I don’t think the trailer being banned is a great deal. Once the movie releases, the reality will be out.”
