The recently-released film Mulk featuring Rishi Kapoor and Taapsee Pannu was banned in Pakistan by the Central Board of Film Censors (CBFC) and the news came as a shock to the director of the movie Anubhav Sinha.
However, the disheartened director wrote an open letter to the citizens of Pakistan and urged them to watch the movie.
Read his open letter below:
Amidst all the animosity shared between the two nations, the Ghughi actress Amar Khan was also upset with the news and took no time to share her thoughts about the ban.
The actress took to her social media accounts and urged everyone to watch it. She shared her view by saying:
Have you seen Mulk? Please do! I believe it will be a liberating cult in times to come
She further stated that the movie speaks beyond any religion and nationality, it was all about humanity!
This so-called ‘Anti India-Pro Muslims and Pro-India and Anti Pakistan’ labeled film is one of the best takes on humanity and prejudices, which speaks beyond one’s religion and nationality.
Moreover, she said that the director used some stereotypical words but the movie was realistic.
All the Hindu actors are playing Muslims, which the director has intentionally played upon. Yes it has a little bit of abba jaan and darhis and jee huzoor type minor stereotypes. But (it is) by far one of the best, most realistic, fearless, believable and rock solid content driven film of 2018.
Anubhav Sinha shared her views on his Twitter account and appreciated her for the love and support.
