The Dirty Picture banned in Pakistan

The Pakistan Censor Board has refused to clear the release of Vidya Balan’s The Dirty Picture for release in their country. Earlier this year, Aamir Khan’s Delhi Belly too was not cleared for a release there. It is learnt that after receiving a clearance by the Indian Central Board of Film Certication (CBFC), the Milan Luthria directed film, apparently based on South siren Silk Smitha, was submitted to the Censor Board of Pakistan for censorship. They rejected the application saying it is not suitable for theatrical release in Pakistan as they deemed the movie inappropriate for viewership in Pakistan, due to its bold and controversial content. We are sure, Vidya Balan’s fans in Pakistan will be sulking.
