Condemning Pakistan’s ban on release of Bollywood movie ‘Phantom,’ Director Kabir Khan on Thursday said that the move was a bit strange as the movie was “anti-terrorism” and not “anti-Pakistani.”
“I am feeling a bit strange as the film has been banned even before it reached the Censor Board. It is not an anti-Pakistan Movie. This only an anti-terrorism film and is against the masterminds of 26/11 attack,” Kabir said.
Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan, who is playing the lead role in the movie, said that the movie is based on facts.
Earlier today, a Pakistani court issued ban on the release of the film in the country on a plea filed by Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed.
Hafiz Saeed, in his plea, had alleged that the film set on post 26/11 attacks, contains ‘filthy propaganda’ against him and his outfit.
The film is supposed to hit the theatres all across the globe on August 28.
