Aamir Khan's most twisted project till date, Delhi Belly, is releasing all over the world today. Directed by Abhinay Deo, "Delhi Belly" is a youth-centric bold film, which stars Imran Khan , Vir Das and Kunal Roy Kapoor. Delhi Belly has not been cleared by the Pakistan censor board. The film was slated to release in Pakistan on Friday.
Pakistan's censor board has not cleared Bollywood star Aamir Khan's production 'Delhi Belly', forcing exhibitors and cinema hall owners to put off plans to release the movie later this week.
Atrium Cinema, a leading cineplex of Karachi, said in a message posted yesterday on its Facebook page: "It has just been notified by the distributors of film 'Delhi Belly' that Central Board of Film Censors, Islamabad, have not passed the film for public exhibition. Thus, the film will not be released in cinemas in Pakistan."
Exhibitors were planning to release the film, which stars Imran Khan, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Poorna Jagannathan, Vir Das and Shenaz Treasurywala, on Friday.
The censor board could not immediately be reached for comment. The reasons for the film not being cleared for exhibition could not immediately be ascertained.
Last year, the censor board had banned the exhibition of 'Tere Bin Laden', which was the film debut of singer Ali Zafar, due to concerns that the depiction of the slain Al Qaida could trigger terror attacks on cinema halls.
