The Sanjay Dutt – Bipasha Basu starrer Lamhaa has been banned in the Middle East. Apparently the censor boards of the Middle Eastern countries have found the film too ‘hot’ to handle, as it is set against the backdrop of militancy and state terrorism in Jammu & Kashmir.
In the film, set to release this Friday, July 16, Sanjay Dutt plays an undercover military intelligence officer who is sent on a secret mission after a separatist leader is murdered. Sanjay and Bipasha’s investigation ends up exposing the dirty secrets of a state’s fight for freedom, the corrupt nexus of politicians, intelligence, militancy and the crucifixion of idealistic and passionate people.
