LAHORE (INN) – The Central Board of Film Censors (CBFC) of Pakistan refused to clear film “Lafangey” for release which was slated to hit screens on Eid-ul-Azha.
According to reports, CBFC has refused to give a censor certificate to the Pakistani film “Lafangey” deeming it ‘unfit for screening in Pakistani theatres’.
CBFC Chairman Arshad Munir told: “All the present members unanimously decided that the film was not capable of screening it in Pakistani theatres.”
He continued: “The film uses very vulgar language and phrases with double meanings which are quite indecent.”
Arshad Munir, however, added that the filmmakers have the right to appeal which they can do whenever they wish to.
On the other hand, the film’s director Abdul Khaliq Khan found the decision very unfortunate because he believes that the film had nothing against the state or religion.
