Government postpones the release of Zindagi Tamasha

03:24 By Lollywood Online No comments


Zindagi Tamasha has undergone quite the trouble, despite being approved by 3 censor boards. This Sarmad Khoosat production was to release on January 24th as announced, but as evident from the ongoing situation, the release might not take place any time soon.

Following the threats received by Sarmad Koosat, and his open letters to the Government and all of Pakistan, the Federal Government, has issued directives to postpone the release. Firdous Ashiq Awan, a special advisor to Prime Minister for information and broadcasting issued a tweet on Tuesday advising the producer to postpone the release of Zindagi Tamasha. She also added that the Central Board of Film Censors has decided to immediately approach the Council of Islamic Ideology to critically review the film.

The Government of Punjab also issued a notice to ban the release of the film, which was followed by another ban from the Sindh Government, claiming that the release of this film may create unrest within the religious segment of the society and disrupt peace.

Both Punjab and Sindh censor boards had cleared the film earlier. It all seems kind of absurd, provided that the censor boards found no objectionable content while analyzing the contents of the film.
