Sanam Saeed asks why ‘Durj’ is banned when Hollywood’s dark films play in our cinemas

  • Sanam Saeed questions censor board’s decision of banning a locally produced film ‘Durj’ in Pakistan.
  • ‘Durj’ lead actor Shamoon Abbasi earlier said there’s personal agenda on banning the film.

Actress Sanam Saeed has raised her voice against the ban on Shamoon Abbasi’s film ‘Durj’. She is the first Pakistani celeb to raise her concerns about banning a locally produced film in Pakistan.

Sanam, in her recent tweet, said that if Hollywood movies with all the explicit content can be shown in Pakistani cinemas, then there is no point of banning local film in the country.

Shamoon Abbasi requests PM to help remove ban on ‘Durj’ in Pakistan

“Why are films like #Durj Banned. If Hollywood films with all their sexual innuendos and violence and dark topics can play in our cinemas then why can’t our independent out of the box films like Durj be played??” she wrote.

Earlier, producer and lead actor of ‘Druj’, Shamoon, said that there’s personal agenda on banning the film in the region as it doesn’t involve any channel or sponsors.
