The Dirty Picture banned in Pakistan !

Earlier this year, it was Imran Khan’s Delhi Belly that was banned in Pakistan
and now, it’s the soon-to-be-released Vidya Balan, Tusshar Kapoor, Naseruddin Shah
and Emraan Hashmi starrer The Dirty Picture that has been banned by the Pakistani censor
board.

Apparently, after acquiring the clearance by the Indian Central Board of Film Certification,
the film was submitted to the Censor Board of Pakistan for censorship. However, the application
was rejected as the film was deemed unsuitable for theatrical release in Pakistan. The reason
for this was cited that the Board felt The Dirty Picture was inappropriate for viewership in
Pakistan due to its bold and controversial content.

It is belived that cinema goers in pakistan felt that if films like murder 2 could be released
then what is the problem with THE DIRTY PICTURE???.

They Felt, the main reason is that they didn’t offered RISHWAT by importers. because pakistani
movies and song lyrics are far more vulgar than dirty picture and further some felt pakistani
punjabi movies are 100% vulgar and THE DIRTY PICTURE is 50%.
