The Censor Board of Pakistan thought this movie showed Pakistan in bad light, so they took this drastic step.
But Varun Dhawan thinks the movie does not intend to insult, or show any country in bad light.
Really upset that #Dishoom is banned in pakistan. I don’t think the film eventually shows any country in a bad light. It’s a wrong decision

He said, “I would like to clear this. There is no negative reference against Pakistan or any community.” “It is a very positive representation. In fact, what we are trying to show is that for certain people money is their religion.”
” It’s not being an Indian, Pakistani, Hindu, Muslim or Christian. In the capitalistic world that we live in, money is the biggest driving force for most crimes,” he added.
