According to reports, censor boards in Islamabad and Karachi have decided to ban the film because it portrays a negative image of Muslims and the negative characters in the film also have Muslim names.
All CDs and DVDs of the film have also been banned in Islamabad. A representative of the film’s distributor informed that the film has been banned in Pakistan.
Although, the film was set to release on January 23 across Pakistan, cinemas in Karachi had removed it from their websites leading to speculations about its imminent screening.
