Following the cinematic bans of Bollywood films Agent Vinod and Ek Tha Tiger due to slight anti-Pakistani motives, there was a slight fear that the same would be the fate of the upcoming romantic film, Jab Tak Hai Jaan – directed by the late Yash Chopra and starring Shahrukh Khan. The soubt originated after King Khan revealed that his role was that of an army officer in Kashmir. Owing a lot to IMGC Global Entertainment for convincing the fact that the film contains no anti-Pakistani actions; the Yash Raj Films product will indeed be released in Pakistan.
After the sudden death of Yash Chopra, Chairman of IMGC Global Entertainment Amjad Rasheed met Aditya Chopra at his father’s funeral and guaranteed him that the film has nothing against the country. He states, “I met Aditya Chopra on his father’s funeral and he assured me that the film is not against Pakistan or its security agencies and it does not have any negative religious connotations. It has a positive vibe overall and I am glad that one of the most awaited films of the year is finally releasing in Pakistan.”
The necessary No Objection Certificate for the film took a while much more than usual but all is well that ends well and the final Yash Chopra film will be released on the 16th of November 2012 in Pakistan.
