Begum Jaan starring Vidya Balan, its trailer has received a lot of praises. People have a lot of expectations from the Srijit Mukherji film.
The Indian adaptation of the Mukherji’s Bengali film Rajkahini, shows the backdrop of the India-Pakistan Partition. According to Times of India, the film will not be released in Pakistan because it highlights the country in a negative light.
The Producer of the film, Mahesh Bhatt has even reportedly written to the Pakistan government to allow the release of the film. However, he has yet to receive their reply and approval.
It definitely seems like that Begun Jaan just like Mahira Khan’s Raees won’t be making it to Pakistani cinemas and others like Neerja and Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB2. It is also being said that the tense relationships between Indi and Pakistan is also a reason for the film not getting its official April 14 release in Pakistan.
