Pakistan Trolled On Twitter For Ordering A Ban On Gurinder Chaddha’s ‘Partition: 1947’

Published on 21 August, 2017 at 3:47 pm By

Gurinder Chaddha’s next directorial venture ‘Partition: 1947’ is creating headlines after Pakistan has ordered a ban on the film. The film is based on Lord Mountbatten, the last viceroy of India, who was sent to India by the British empire to oversee the process of the partition of India. Like many other films on the partition, this film also zeroes in on the unimaginable trauma the common people of both the lands had to go during partition and how the politics played by certain dignitaries from both lands affected and changed the lives of the people forever. According to a report, the film, featuring Huma Qureshi and Manish Dayal in pivotal roles, was released in India on Friday but was banned in Pakistan.

The imposition of a ban on the film evoked a great response on Twitter, with most people criticizing Pakistan for the same. In fact, a hashtag has also been created to cluster all opinions under a single roof – #BannedInPakistan.



While speaking at a special screening of the film, director Gurinder Chaddha said:

We made this film with a lot of love and effort, I hope people appreciate the film like they have appreciated the film in other countries such as UK, France, Germany and Australia.

Although the film has been a hit in foreign shores under the title ‘Viceroy’s House’, ‘Partition: 1947’ has failed to create a niche in the Indian film industry so far and collected just Rs 11 lakh on the first day.
