Salman Khan’s super hit movie ‘Ek the Tiger’ was banned in Pakistan in 2012. Now its sequel Tiger Zinda Hai’s trailer has launched and the question is whether it will release in Pakistan or not?
The lead cast of the movie is again Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, and yet again Katrina Kaif is portraying a Pakistani spy agent role. Ek the Tiger was banned in Pakistan because the lead characters were playing intelligence agents of India and Pakistan. Also, Pakistani cinema board claimed that the movie had some scenes that were against Pakistan. Well, they are playing same roles in the sequel as well, so if it is judged on similar grounds, the movie might just get banned in Pakistan yet again.
The whole movie is not yet released and it is possible that this time Pakistani Board finds nothing against Pakistan and release it in the country but totally vice versa situation can occur as well. So fans of Salman Khan in Pakistan need to wait and see whether they will watch their favorite hero’s movie in the cinema or not.
It is pertinent to mention that immediately after the trailer launch of the movie, a divide was seen in the response to the movie by Pakistani celebrities.
While Imran Abbas praised the trailer and wanted to watch it in Pakistani cinema, Shaan Shahid put forward his opinion as well asking why Katrina has to play a spy from Pakistan’s role, he even asked the writer to do his homework and stop fooling people in the name of cinema.
#tigerzindahai should be released in Pakistan.
