Pakistan had put a ban on Bollywood films, after India restricted Pakistani artistes in India as an aftermath of Uri terror attack. ‘Kaabil’ was the first film to be granted a release in Pakistan post the ban was lifted. Presently, Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ which also stars Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, is being showcased there.

However, the release date of ‘Raees’ is yet unknown. When asked about the same, Mobashir Hasan, chairman of the Pakistan Censor Board told the daily, “We are going to follow the due process. I would not know about the release date. For that, you should speak to the distributor.”
