After ‘Mulk’ gets banned in Pak, director Anubhav pens a letter to its citizens
Anubhav Sinha’s high intense courtroom drama ‘Mulk’ released today in India. However, the film featuring Taapsee Pannu, Rishi Kapoor failed to get a clearance in Pakistan. A day before its release, the censor board of Pakistan banned Sinha’s directorial. Hurt by the decision, the director penned a letter to the citizens of Pakistan.
Sharing the same on his Twitter handle, Anubhav wrote, “A letter to Pakistan. Sorry, a question really!!!
#MULK in Theaters tomorrow.”
Read excerpts from his letter here:
I have recently made a film called ‘MULK’. Unfortunately, you will not be able to see it legally as the censor board in your country has banned it from you watching it.
I remember the day the trailer came out many in India and also many in Pakistan wrote against it. Some in India thought it was pro Muslim and some in Pakistan thought it stereotyped Muslims. Contradictory but true. I kept insisting the film was about LOVE. Love amongst Hindus and Muslims. Now the word is out. The press has seen it and the audience in the UAE to has seen it…”

We hope that Pakistan’s censor board reconsiders its decision.
