Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil to be Released in Pakistan after the Ban – Here’s How Rakesh Roshan Reacted to It
While rave reviews for Kaabil are waving everywhere, now here comes another good news touching the feet of this Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam starrer flick. Actually, after having an outstanding performance at Indian Box Office, Kaabil is now all set to be released in Pakistan. As a matter of fact, it is to be the first Indian film to be screened in Pak cinemas after the ban on screening of Bollywood movies in Pakistan is lifted.
Rakesh Roshan’s Reaction on Kaabil’s Release in Pakistan
On this issue, Rakesh Roshan, the producer of Kaabil spoke up, “I got a call from one of my distributors in Pakistan, Satish Anand, who is currently in India, saying that they all liked Kaabil so much there…”
Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees too to be Released in Pakistan!
It is interesting that Kaabil will have a solo release in Pakistan though it clashed with Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees in domestic theatres. Rakesh Sr cleared up with saying, “ONLY Kaabil cleared at the censors” and Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees hasn’t got a censor certificate yet. So while Hrithik’s Kaabil will release in Pakistan from tomorrow or day after, we can assume that Shah Rukh’s Raees too will release in Pakistan once it clears the censor test.

Roshan further told, “It (Kaabil) will be a solo release in Pakistan from tomorrow or day after. They wanted the message of Kaabil given by Hrithik and Yami to spread and reach everyone in Pakistan. It’s a very nice step and a historic one towards increasing the friendship between the two countries. I hope it grows bigger every day!”
Well, Pakistani artists were banned in India following an attack on an Army base in Uri town of Jammu and Kashmir. And as a protest against the ban of Pakistani artists in India, the managements of Pakistani cinemas on September 30 announced the suspension of screening of all Bollywood movies. Now it is finally lifted up.
