Pakistan bans release of Indian cricketer MS Dhoni’s biopic?


With rising tensions between India and Pakistan over the recent Uri attacks, it seems the first film to be affected will be ‘MS Dhoni – The Untold Story’.

Mid-Day reports that the film based on the Indian cricketer will not be releasing in Pakistan.

A source from Pakistan’s exhibition industry said, “The film does not feature in the programming list since no distributor wants to bring it here.”

Meanwhile, IMGC Global entertainment, a Pakistan-based distribution company, chairman Ahmed Rashid added, “Amid current tension between the two countries, we have decided not to release the film.”

In India, ‘MS Dhoni – The Untold Story’ will have one of the widest releases this weekend.
