The newly released Omung Kumar’s film Sarabjit, starring Randeep Hooda, Aishwarya Rai and Richa Chadda, is based ordeal of Sarabjit Singh who was captured and deemed an Indian spy by Pakistan and who later died in jail on May 2, 2013. The movie has failed to find any distributor at the box office due to anti-Pakistan content. Pakistan’s Central Board of Film Censors (CBFC) Chairman Mobashir Hasan told PTI that until now not a single major distribution company in the country had approached to review the content of the movie.
“In Pakistan the system is a distribution company first approaches the information ministry for importing and releasing an Indian film the ministry then asks the censor board to review content of the film,” he said.
No distributor wants their investment to go waste as the film has a non commercial subject and anti-Pakistan content.
