Taapsee Pannu’s spy action flick Naam Shabana received a decent response in India. It got good to average reviews and collected 33 crore so far in 2 weeks.
The latest news about the film is that it is banned in Pakistan. The Pakistan CBFC didn’t provide any reason for the ban but reportedly, it is said to be due the topic of terrorism.
Interestingly, Naam Shabana was first released in Pakistan with the necessary cuts suggested by the board but then suddenly, they took the decision to ban the film entirely. There is still no official answer from the board about the reason for ban.
Indian films were banned in Pakistan when Indian soldiers carried out the surgical strike in terrorist camps in Pakistan, as a response to the Uri attacks happened in September, 2016, in which many of our soldiers were martyred.
Recently, Aamir Khan refused to release Dangal in Pakistan when the board asked to cut the scenes of Indian flag and our national anthem.
Naam Shabana also stars Akshay Kumar, Manoj Bajpayee, Prithviraj Sukumaran and Anupam Kher. It is directed by Shivam Nair and it is a spin-off of Akshay Kumar’s 2015 film ‘Baby’.
