Bhaag Milkha Bhaag in win-win situation; will finally release in Pakistan on August 23!

The Pakistan Censor Board which initially banned the release of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s biopic, has now agreed to release the inspirational flick next month

Though the Farhan Akhtar starrer is minting good money at the Indian box office and overseas, the biopic was banned from being released in Pakistan after the trailer of the film showed the lead character refusing to move to Pakistan to participate in the race. The dialogue – ‘Mujhse nahin hoga, main Pakistan nahin jaunga’ was considered as the main reason for disallowing the film’s release.

After a lot of debate – ranging from whether a biopic on an Indian athlete would do well in Pakistan to lesser number of shows in the holy month of Ramadan – Geo Films has now decided to release BMB that has been doing well in India and across the globe. Rehmat Fazli, CEO of Geo Films believes that the audience in Pakistan has become mature and deserves to watch quality films on bigger screens instead of their homes.

“The film’s release was mostly halted due to the holy month of Ramadan where the number of shows in Pakistani cinemas is less than usual,” informs Rehmat Fazli. “But after Eid, the movie will be released all over the country and the cinema loving audience would get a chance to watch the movie on the large screen instead of on pirated print. They prefer a late release to a no-release and that’s why we are confident that the movie will do well,” adds Fazli.

Congratulations to the team of BMB and we hope the film would continue its victorious march across the border and inspire the people of Pakistan.
