A leading daily reports that the Pakistan Government has asked cable operators across the country to refrain from screening promos and reviews of Ek Tha Tiger. The reason behind the upcoming possible ban is that the Government feels that ISI has been showcased in a bad way in the film.
The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority issued a letter to all satellite TV channels and cable networks, stating that Ek Tha Tiger is "reportedly based on the activities of ISI and RAW". "Besides, basic theme of the story revolves around Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency with the objective to tarnish the image of state owned institution," the letter said.
Salman Khan will be seen playing the role of a RAW agent in the film. Salman's Ek Tha Tiger has the power to become one of the most commercially successful movies of this year. But, this time, Bad Luck to Pakistan.
