"Mulk" banned by Pakistan's censor board, Anubhav Sinha urges fans for illegal downloads
"Mulk" has been banned by the Pakistan's censor board, says director Anubhav Sinha, who has appealed the viewers there to watch the movie even if it means downloading it illegally.
The courtroom drama, which deals with Islamophobia through the story of a family, is releasing this Friday.
In a letter addressed to "dear citizens of Pakistan", Sinha said his film talks about an important issue: love amongst Hindus and Muslims and peaceful co-existence.
Sinha said, "Here is my question to you. Why is it so that they do not want you to see the film that talks about co-existence. I know, sooner or later, you will have access to the film. Please do watch it and give me your opinion on why did the Pakistan censor board ban the film?
Presented by Kamal Mukut and Soham Rockstar Entertainment, a Benaras Media Works production, "Mulk" is produced by Deepak Mukut and Sinha.
"They will realize how essential it is to the well-being of the human race across the world," he added.
Rishi Kapoor, Taapsee Pannu, Prateik Babbar, Rajat Kapoor, Ashutosh Rana, Manoj Pahwa and Neena Gupta feature in the film.
"Veere Di Wedding", "Padman" and "Pari" were the recent films that were banned in Pakistan.
