India, September 6, 2015: Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif starring “Phantom” which is based on the 26/11 Mumbai attacks is reportedly banned in Pakistan. The news came from Pakistan claiming that the movie is showcasing the attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed.
The Lahore High Court banned the release of the movie which was to release on August 28th after the plea filed by the Jud chief and 26/11 attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed. He has alleged that the film contains “filthy propaganda” against him. Whereas some sources are claiming that the ban of the film is nothing more than a “publicity stunt” by the film makers to publicize the movie. No one from the movie team has said anything about this issue.
