Tere Bin Laden received critical acclaims from the Indian critics but it may not see the light of the day in Pakistan. This Indian comedy, which has a fake Osama Bin Laden, has been banned in Pakistan. It was earlier scheduled for release Today.
The censor board in Pakistan is not happy with the way Osama Bin Laden has been portrayed in the film, and warned that it would trigger 'terrorist attack'. It also alleged that the film portrays the country's law-enforcing agencies in a bad light and contains vulgar and objectionable dialogue.
However, the distributor for the film Nadeem Mandviwala has filed an appeal against the decision, to which the ministry of culture will announce its final decision today.
"I find it quite disturbing that we cannot portray Osama Bin Laden and the law enforcement agencies," BBC quoted Mr Mandviwala as saying. "It's acceptable that we make comedies about the president and prime minister all the time, but not Osama."
Tere Bin Laden is about a Pakistani journalist, played by Pakistani singer Ali Zafar, trying to earn quick-big-bucks to fulfill his dream by trying to sell an interview of a fake Osama Bin Laden as a scoop.
