The Pakistan Central Censor Board has given a “green light” to the Kabir Khan-directed movie, about an Indian man’s attempt to help a young, speech-impaired girl from Pakistan return to her homeland with some cuts.
The Chairman of the Central Board of Film Censors Mobashir Hasan said that “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” has been approved for Eid release by the CBFC but with several cuts.
“We recommended these cuts after thorough discussion by our panel which comprises members of natural security agencies, film critics and members of the civil society” said Hasan.
Filming of Bjarangi Bhaijaan was intentionally delayed as some major Pakistani films were slated for release at Eid as well.
The two big Pakistani releases include “Wrong No” and “Bin Roye” and they are bound to face stiff competition from the Salman starrer during the Eid holidays.
HUM films, which have produced “Bin Roye” are said to be keen to have no international competition at Eid.
“Bin Roye” is the second film appearance for the popular Mahira who is making her Bollywood debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in “Raees”.
