Sunday, 04 Mar, 2018

Anushka Sharma's horror film Pari, which was released in India on Friday, has been banned in Pakistan, according to a report in Dawn.

And now Anushka's husband Virat Kohli too has posted a sweet review for Pari on micro-blogging site Twitter and cited it as the actress' best work till date. The censor board also says that the movie seems to be promoting clack magic, which, the board said, is un-Islamic.

The Anushka Sharma's starred film "promotes black magic, some non-Islamic values and anti-Muslim sentiments", The Express Tribune quoted government sources as saying.

Ranbir Kapoor, who is working on the "Dutt" biopic with Ranbir, chose to trick the star into believing that his "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" co-actor Anushka Sharma was playing the character of a dog woman in "Pari".

Even though the film was cleared by the provincial film boards, the Central Board of Film Censors banned the movie. Reportedly, The film will beat the opening day collection of her last production, Phillauri which earned Rs 4.02 crore on Day1 at Domestic Box Office. Pari is the second Indian film which is banned in Pakistan this year.

Before Pari, Akshay Kumar's latest film Padman was also banned in Pakistan. At that time Federal Censor Board member Ishaq Ahmed said, "We can't allow our film distributors to import such films which are against our traditions and culture".
