Why are films like #Durj— Sanam Saeed (@sanammodysaeed) October 14, 2019
Banned. If Hollywood films with all their sexual innuendos and violence and dark topics can play in our cinemas then why can't our independent out of the box films like Durj be played??@shamoonAbbashttps://t.co/xV5vZ1cKtx
“Why are films like #Durj Banned. If Hollywood films with all their sexual innuendos and violence and dark topics can play in our cinemas then why can't our independent out of the box films like Durj be played??" she wrote.
Earlier, producer and lead actor of ‘Druj', Shamoon, said that there's personal agenda on banning the film in the region as it doesn't involve any channel or sponsors.
“We are working on it and trying our best, we are requesting the authorities for another review, and if they find anything unsuitable, we can remove it as per their request, but a complete ban has broken many hearts and we can see that,” he added.
