Two Bollywood films banned in Pakistan – Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express and Akshay Kumar’s Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Dobaara will not be releasing in Pakistan during the Eid festivities. This is largely because the Pakistani government wants their local films to do well at the box office during Eid, which will mark the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Soheb Ali, who is owner of Showbiz Spice, stated the following about the ban. “These movies will release later on in Pakistan, but after Eid, so I don’t think it would cause much harm to the business of these movies in the international market. They can still make 100 crore if the movies have potential.”
