Director Rahul Dholakia’s film Lamhaa, which tells us the untold story of Kashmir, has been banned in the Middle East. The movie, which is set to release this Friday, won’t be screened in UAE, Bahrain, Qatar and Kuwait.
The exact reason for the censor board to ban this film in the above mentioned countries is not yet clear.
Bipasha Basu is literally shocked with this news.
She tweeted: “Ban on honest film? What happened to freedom of expression? Sadly, people of Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman and UAE won’t be able to watch our film.”
Sanjay Dutt, who plays a sharp shooter in the film, too was disappointed with this development and shared Bipasha’s feelings.
“First, the film could not be premiered in Kashmir and now the Middle East has banned the film,” Dutt wrote on Twitter.
Well, I wonder what went wrong…
