Bollywood’s most popular starrer Akshay kumar movie “Baby” has been banned in Pakistan, owing to its controversial content and Pakistani nationals being portrayed as terrorists on a wider canvas.
According to the Dawn, a representative of the film’s distributor, Everready Pictures shared the news about the film being banned in Karachi and Islamabad.
The Neeraj Pandey film was released in India Friday with critics calling it an “edge-of-the-seat thriller”.
“This film CDs and DVDs have also been banned in Islamabad. The company has taken a similar stance on this issue and will not go-ahead with its release”.
The movie revolves around an undercover unit, formed to keep an eye on the movements of terrorist groups and to nix their plans to disrupt peace and harmony. The film also stars Rana Daggubati, Danny Denzongpa, Anupam Kher and Taapsee Pannu.
And from across the border, the film features Pakistani actor Mikaal Zulfiqar and Rasheed Naz.
The film, which was set to release Jan 23 across Pakistan, has been removed from the websites of cinemas in Karachi, which has added to the speculation of film’s screening.
