Pakistan Bans Film ‘Ambarsariya’

Punjabi film Ambarsariya has been blocked for release in Pakistan by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). Starring Diljit Dosanjh, Naveet Kaur and Monica Gill in lead roles, Ambarsariya follows the story of a man who lives a dual life as a member of RAW and an insurance agent. Speaking to The Express Tribune, CBFC chairman Mobasher Hasan explained the reason behind the ban. “The movie makes strong references to India’s spy agency, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), which is why the panel decided against it.”

According to Hasan, the film was initially viewed by a CBFC panel that had voted against the movie. Following the panel’s decision, the distributors appealed to have the film reviewed again, this time by the full board. “Even the full board did not clear the movie due to which its release in Pakistan has been blocked,” said Hasan.

Asked if Ambarsariya would have been fit for release if the references to RAW had been edited out, the Tribune quoted Hasan as saying: “That would not be possible since the movie is primarily about RAW and editing would have affected its story.
