Ban on Ek Tha Tiger's promo forces Salman Khan to visit Pakistan

The promo of Salman Khan starrer Ek Tha Tiger has been banned in Pakistan. The government of Pakistan feels that the ISI has been showcased in a bad way in the film. So, they have asked cable operators across the country to refrain from screening promos and reviews of Ek Tha Tiger. But Salman Khan and director Kabir Khan are not very happy with the ban and to clarify the misunderstanding they will visit Pakistan soon.

Kabir Khan told a leading daily, "It's disturbing for Ek Tha Tiger to be perceived as an anti-Pakistan film. But it isn't surprising. Look at the cheap jingoistic anti-Pakistan films that have released over the years. We can't really blame them if they perceive Ek Tha Tiger as one such film."

Kabir khan further added, "Neither Salman nor I have ever visited Pakistan. So why not? We are willing to do anything that's required to make Pakistanis believe that our project is not against them. I don't think the trailer being banned is a big deal. Once the film releases, the truth will be out."

Earlier this year, in March, Pakistani censors had banned Saif Ali Khan's Agent Vinod as it portrayed the ISI in a bad light.
