The Sindh Board of Films and Censor on Tuesday banned upcoming Pakistani film "Zindagi Tamasha" three days before its release.
A notification issued by the board said although it had previously examined and cleared the Sarmad Khoosat's directorial film, it has now been informed that it may create unrest within a segment of the society.
"If the film titled above is released for public exhibition, it may create un-rest within the religious segment of the society and may deteriorate and be detrimental to the peaceful circumstances in the country.
Therefore, in order to avoid such a situation, it is advised not to release the Film for public-exhibition till further decision by the Sindh Board of Films Censor. " said the notification.
The decision to ban the film followed a similar move by the censor authorities in Punjab earlier today.
Directed and co-produced by Sarmad along with his sister Kanwal Khoosat, Zindagi Tamasha is a bilingual movie, which has been shot in Lahore.
Written by Nirmal Bano, a fresh graduate from NCA, it features model turned actress Eman Suleman, Samiya Mumtaz, Arif Hasan and Ali Qureshi in pivotal roles, while Sarmad will have a special appearance in the upcoming film.
