Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger Zinda Hai will not be releasing in Pakistan. The first instalment of the film faced the same fate and this time again the Central Board Of Film Certification CFBC has refused to issue a No Objection Certificate (NOC) to the film. Salman and Katrina are reprising their roles as Tiger and Zoya with Zoya being a Pakistani spy. The censor board has banned the film saying that:
“The image of Pakistan and its law enforcement agencies has been compromised in the film.”
Earlier Ek Tha Tiger was also banned for the same reason. Many people including celebrities like Imran Abbas were hopeful for its release but the film has failed to get certification. With Rangreza and Arth also releasing on 21st December, this ban will in a way prove good for the local industry!
