After 'Mulk' Gets Banned In Pakistan, Director Urges Viewers To Watch It 'Illegally'!

Rishi Kapoor and Taapsee Pannu's upcoming film Mulk has been banned in Pakistan. Reports claim that the Bollywood filmmakers are upset over the "prejudiced verdict". So much so, that director Anubhav Sinha has urged viewers in Pakistan to "watch the film illegally, if you must".

According to a statement issued on behalf of the makers on Thursday, the Federal Censor Board of Pakistan has banned the film, a courtroom drama around restoring the honor of a Muslim family accused of treason.

Danyal Gilani, Chairman, Pakistan's Central Board of Film Censors ( CBFC), told IANS via the social media: "Members of the CBFC unanimously decided not to approve the trailer of 'Mulk' as its contents flout the Censorship of Film Code, 1980."

"I really wanted you all to see this film legally, but do watch it illegally, if you must, though our digital team at home is working hard to stop all piracy," wrote Sinha, who also pointed out how based on the trailer, some people in India thought it was pro-Muslim and people in Pakistan felt it stereotyped Muslims.
