The Censor Board of Pakistan took specific objection to that line and has hence refused the release of the film there! The film that is produced by Viacom 18 stuck to their ground of staying true to the reality, since the film is a biopic and hence decided to not edit and release the film in Pakistan. Though the story would have been relevant for both countries, and doesn’t focus on animosity, it is better such strained relations are not meddled with.
