Pak Wanted To Cut The Indian National Anthem Before Releasing ‘Dangal’. What Aamir Did Next Is Commendable

Published on 7 April, 2017 at 3:30 pm By

When India imposed a ban on Pakistani artists to work in India after Uri Attacks in September, last year, the theater owners and exhibitors in Pakistan also temporarily stopped screening Indian films.

However, Pakistan has lifted the ban on Indian films earlier this year. A few days ago, a local distributor from Pakistan requested to release ‘Dangal’ there. Aamir Khan and his film’s team was absolutely okay with the offer. But as per the source, Aamir has now stopped the release of ‘Dangal’ in Pakistan because of Pakistan’s weird demand.

A source says,

When the film went to the Pakistan censor board, they were fine with it except for two particular scenes towards the end — one in which the Indian flag is shown and another in which the Indian national anthem is played after Geeta Phogat (played by Fatima Sana Shaikh) wins the gold medal. The Pakistan censors wanted the scenes to be edited out before they gave Dangal the green signal.



 

When Aamir got to know about this he felt that the demand for the two cuts was surprising, because the film isn’t jingoistic in nature. The source says,

It’s a sports-based biopic with no direct or indirect reference to Pakistan. The film only highlights India’s nationalistic sentiment, so what is the reason to chop off those scenes?

The source further added,

It will result in an economic loss to the tune of Rs 10-12 crore, as Pakistan is an important international territory vis-à-vis money, but he isn’t willing to edit the scenes in question. He is aware that not releasing the film could lead to piracy, but he is sure about what he won’t do.

People should now understand that Aamir’s loyalty lies with the country he belongs to. Those who called him antinationalist should now feel sorry about it!
