Pooja Shetty-Deora and Aarti Shetty’s Tere Bin Laden will not be released in Pakistan, where it was to open yesterday (July 16) alongwith India and the rest of the world. The Pakistani censor authorities have reportedly banned the film for its foul language. Earlier, the authorities in Pakistan had asked the local distributor to drop the Laden from the film’s title, which he did. However, when the Pakistani censors saw the film this week, they refused to pass it because of the four-letter words in it. Unfortunately for Ali Zafar, the debut-making hero of the film, he held the distribution rights of the film for Pakistan as part payment of his remuneration. He is a known face in the country not just because he is a national of Pakistan but also because he is a popular pop singer there. In fact, Ali had recently floated a media company and Tere Bin Laden was to have been the first release through that company.
