Pak censor board clears Padmavat for screening; without any cuts
In a rather interesting turn of events, the Pakistan censor board has cleared the controversial Indian film Padmavat without any cuts and okayed its screening in the country.
Islamabad-based Central Board of Film Censors (CBFC) chairman Mobashir Hasan made the announcement on his Twitter account.
He wrote on Twitter, “Central Board of Film Censors (CBFC) has declared a feature film containing Indian cast and crew, ‘Padmaavat’, without any excision suitable for public exhibition in the cinemas with a ‘U’ certification” .
There were earlier apprehensions that the film may also face difficulty in Pakistan as the Muslim ruler Alauddin Khilji’s portrayal may be seen as portrayed as negative. >
