The movie ‘Durj’, has been released worldwide on October 11.
The actor had shared the release date of his film on his Facebook account, saying that the film will hit cinemas worldwide on October 11 and in Pakistan it would be released on October 18.
The censor boards across the country had imposed a complete ban on the film but had not issued any statement on why the film had been banned.
Shamoon Abbasi told that the film was initially cleared by film censor boards in both Punjab and Sindh, but rejected by the federal censor board.
“Suddenly, something happened; [the clearances from Punjab and Sindh] got revoked and the ones pending were put on hold. This is what we know for now and definitely, we will have to counter the process”, he said.
Abbasi is unsure what could have been objectionable in the film, which is based on the true story of a pair of brothers who dug up over 100 graves and cannibalized the corpses.
He says the objection would be more understandable had there been a unanimous rejection fr
