The biopic of Arunachalam Muruganandham, Padman, released last Friday, has been banned in Pakistan. The federal censor board of Pakistan has banned the release of the film, stating that the federal board cannot allow the release of films against the traditions and cultural values of the country, as said by Ishaq Ahmad, a member of FCB.
Padman was also rejected by the Punjab film censor board, which even refused to watch the film saying that the film projected something taboo and hence there are no possibilities of a clearance certificate. They've said that they can't allow their country's distributors to release films that impact their traditions and values in a negative way. Syed Noor, a Pakistani film maker said that the distributors must be met sooner and instructed on choosing of films to be imported from other nations while ensuring they don't hurt sentiments of Pakistanis and also said that besides Padman, Padmaavat also deserved ban as it projects Muslims in a wrong way.
Padman has opened to extremely
positive reviews and earned 10.26 crores in day 1, and is on the way to a 50
crores weekend. The fictional take on the life of Arunachalam Muruganandham who
had developed low cost sanitary pad making machine, stars Akshay Kumar, Radhika
Apte and Sonam Kapoor and is directed by R.Balki.
