Salman Khan’s upcoming film ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ is facing severe criticism by Pakistani government who recently called a ban on film as well as on its promos.
All Pakistani satellite TV channels received a letter from PEMRA stating that ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ is based on the activities of ISI and RAW and portrays ISI in a bad way thus must not be released in Pakistan.
Whereas, Salman Khan and the director of film ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ Kabir Khan has said to visit Pakistan. In an interview Kabir Khan said “Neither Salman nor I have ever visited Pakistan. So why not? We are willing to do anything that`s required to make Pakistanis believe that our project is not against them. I don`t think the trailer being banned is a big deal. Once the film releases, the truth will be out."
He also clarified on twitter, “I will say it once more... ?#EkThaTiger? is NOT anti Pakistan...(sic)”.
Salman Khan has a great fan following in Pakistan. Let’s wait and see either his ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ will have a ban or gets released in Pakistan in August, 2012.
