Vidya Balan-starrer 'Begum Jaan' trailer which was released earlier this month has already received positive feedback from the audiences and broke the internet with maximum views. Set in the backdrop of late Indian Independence period of 1947, the film is the Hindi adaptation of National Award-winning filmmaker Srijit Mukherji's Bengali film, 'Rajkahini'.
The story revolves around the demolishing of brothel stood on the India-Pakistan border and hence showcases the events around the partition era. Well, according to the reports this has lead to the ban of the movie in Pakistan.
The movie shall not be released in Pakistan as the story necessarily involves a lot of harsh truths about the time.
Mahesh Bhatt, producer of the film had written to the Pakistan government to allow the release of 'Begum Jaan' but he still has not got any response.In the recent times, we have seen a lot of political hostile from both the sides and yet it has effected the release of the upcoming bollywood movies as well.
'Begum Jaan' suffers the same fate after films like 'Raees', 'Neerja', to name a few, which have faced the restriction in its release in the country.
The current political situation between the two nations is also cited as a reason for the film not getting its release. The film is scheduled to release on 14th April in India.
