India movie banned in Pakistan citing "anti- Pakistan propaganda"
An Indian movie based on the 1971 war has been reportedly banned in Pakistan following claims that it allegedly contains "anti- Pakistan propaganda".
It is alleged that the movie 'The Bastard Child', depicting events of 1970-1971 in East Pakistan, shows atrocities committed by Pakistan Army personnel in East Pakistan, leading to its separation.
According to The Nation, the movie attempts to show Pakistan and its security forces in a bad light and is being released at a time when the key institutions are engaged in large-scale counter-terrorism operations to end extremism and bring peace in Pakistan and across the world.
The movie, made by Maktub Entertainment and presented by Pencil Cell Production, has been directed by Mrityunjay Devvrat and produced by Soumya Joshi Banerje, Farooque Shaikh, Pavan Malhotra, Indraneil Sengupta, Raima Sen and Tilotama Shome.
