Bajrangi Bhaijaan movie still

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan‘s recent release ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ is doing excellent business not only in India but also in Pakistan. The Pakistan censor board had passed the movie with a few cuts, much to the delight of Salman Khan fans in Pakistan as they too got to see their favorite Khan’s film on Eid.

But it seems that the Salman Khan-starrer has spelt trouble for the chairman of Pakistan Censor Board, Fakhr-e-Alam. Alam had praised the Salman Khan starer and also conveyed that the movie was not anti Pakistan. His claim has not gone well with a few, Alam has revealed that he has been receiving threats for certifying Indian films. He has now appealed to theater owners to beef up security around their property.

Sources said,”A few people are not happy with the Censor Board’s decision to allow screening of ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ in Pakistan as they believe it has anti-Pak overtones. So, they have been targeting Alam on various platforms and branding him a traitor.”

Sources added, “Alam is just doing his job and people should understand that. There’s nothing in the film that will hurt people’s sentiments here. In fact, people have loved that film here. It is a random threat from a random Twitter handle, but the Censor Board has asked cinema owners to tighten security. Such mischievous elements are present in every country; there is no particular organisation or political party that has taken offence to the screening of Indian films. The Censor Board panel includes people from our Army and they had approved theatrical exhibition of ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ here. Had there been any anti-Pak message in the film, it wouldn’t have been certified in the first place.”

Hope things are resolved amicably and nobody gets hurt.
