It isn’t only Dangal that’s been banned in Pakistan. Neeraj Pandey’s espionage thriller Naam Shabana starring Taapsee Pannu has also been stopped in theatres across Pakistan.
In this case, the Pakistani officials woke up to the theme of international terrorism after the film was released.
A source close to the development says , “The Pakistani authorities seemed fine with the film. But a day after the film released they woke up to the fact that the theme of terrorism could reflect badly on Pakistan.”
