Shahrukh Khan and debutant Anushka Sharma starer Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi will not release in Pakistan.
This after the Mumbai terror attacks which have made the relations between the two countries hit a rock bottom. Bollywood which has always advocated for stronger cultural ties between the two countries is also marred by the recent terror strikes.
Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi will not hit the theatres in Pakistan on December 12 the day it releases in India and may not release ever across the border. A source in Yash Raj Films have said that they are looking at all the possibilities. The sources added that since the government is planning to scrap all bilateral ties with Pakistan it will make no sense in releasing a movie there.
Shahrukh Khan is the most popular Bollywood star across the border and has a huge fan following. Both Shahrukh and director Aditya Chopra are aware of the fact that releasing the movie in Pakistan at this moments might hurt the sentiments of people in India. The only losers in all this will be the Shahrukh fans sitting across the border.
