Shahrukh Khan’s Raees banned in Pakistan

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Pakistan’s censor board has not cleared Shahrukh Khan and Mahira Khan starrer Raees for release in the country after finding the film’s content and theme objectionable.

“The portrayal of Muslims is negative and the film’s content undermines Islam, and a specific religious sect, (while also) portraying Muslims as criminals, wanted persons and terrorists,” an official source in the censor board said.

A official with Hum Films declined to comment and said so far they had not got any official word from the censor board about banning “Raees.”

The release of Raees was eagerly awaited in Pakistan as it marks the Bollywood debut of Pakistan’s top actress, Mahira Khan.

Exhibitors are now hoping that the Censor Board will allow the release of Aamir Khan’s “Dangal” which has become the highest grossing film in India. “We are hoping to get clearance from the Censor Board once we submit prints of the film to them,” a official with Geo Films which has rights to release the film in Pakistan said.

    Agr tum logo ko box office India website pr believe hai tou wo tou Dangal ka 373 crore business show kr rahi hai other sites 386 crore show kr rahi Dangal 386 crore
    Kare tou theik agr Raees 12 days mein 146 crore Karen tou fake figure yeh kaisi science hai fake figure ka issue Dangal or Sultan ki dafa point out kiun nahi hua

    • Box office india only shows Hindi versions collection…
      Dangal tamil and telugu version collected around 13 crore… Adding that to 373 makes it 386 crore…
      If you are a regular followers of BOI you will get to know about that… In their articles also they mentioned the same…

    No matters what happens to Raees we are eagerly waiting for Jolly LLB 2.

  7. oh no yaar kash release ho jati wahan par. taklu ko ek aur joota padhta…..woh bhi karara…..

  8. I’m Muslim Pakistani raees dosen’t offend me I can’t comment about anything else but raees would have broken records in Pakistan only reason they’ve banned movie is because he plays a shia Muslim in the film simple as that no other reason.

  9. Frankly speaking, I was not expecting too much from Pakistan. This film is not totally against Islam, but, must say, few facts are there in the 3 hrs picture, against the culture, tradition and practice of this religion.
    And we should accept it, according to me it’s okey and one should not stand opposite of the decision of not releasing this movie in Pakistan.
    #respact all religion.

  11. Pakistani Kehte he k Raees me Musalmano ko galat dikhaya or Musalmano par Isla galat asar hoga… Hahaha.. Arey Kitna accha dikhaya he Raees Me koi b Dhandha chota nhi hota, dhandhe se bada koi dharam nhi jata. Agar us dhandhe se kisiko Nuksan ho ya Jaan jaaye to wo galat he. So Raees Ne b Waisa hi Kia galat Hua to Marr gya but Paki to Marna Maarna krte he so Raees Unke lye Kaise hogi… Get Lost Pakis

    Is this not intolerance in Pakistan ? some intellectual said India is intolerance country neither any Pakistani & Indian ?

  13. why Pakistan board giving wrong reason …

    it was shown in film – rdx coming from Pakistan so there have banned .. if Muslims r shown in bad light or not — is not question if film is made on arun gavli or dawood or sandal king …people surrounding to them will be in bad light ..similarly this movie was on Abdul latif life and his era so obivios smuggling was part of it…..

    pak should accept fact…
