Bina Kak's Book is Great - Salman Khan

Bina Kak's Book is Great - Salman Khan

Pakistan's Central Board of Film Censors (CBFC) chairman Mobasher Hasan told The Express Tribune: "Tiger Zinda Hai has been refused an NOC citing the same reason as the first instalment of the franchise".

In the film there are several scenes of hitting at Pakistan's security agencies and hence problematic for public screening in Pakistan.

"I don't understand whether we are here promoting Tiger Zinda Hai or her book". The actors were seen dancing to the tunes of the songs Chikni Chameli, O O Jaane Jaana and the latest song Swag Se Karenge Sabka Swagat from their upcoming film Tiger Zinda Hai.

"Tiger Zinda Hai", directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, starring Salman with Katrina Kaif, will release on December 22nd. Besides the buzz around its one-of-a-kind action sequences and exotic locations, the on-screen reunion of Salman and Katrina after a gap of five years, has piqued the interest of Bollywood buffs.

Given Salman Khan's fan following in Pakistan, there was a high interest level in the movie.

Salman Khan is known to be a keeper of relationships.

Tiger Zinda Hai's director has often said that his film is a human story not a political take. "And there's nothing bigger than humanity", he said.

Eventually, the popularity of Bollywood nearly eclipsed the local movie culture in the country, but in the past few years, filmmakers and actors from Pakistan have come into their own.

The film has not been granted a No-Objection Certificate (NOC) for release in Pakistan.
