Resham’s comeback movie Swaarangi has been banned in Islamabad and cantonment areas throughout the country. The reason, as told by the PR person, was that the authorities concerned believed that the movie was promoting drug addiction. Swaarangi is set to release on September 11 with Sarmad Khoosat’s Manto.
The filmmakers have challenged the decision of Central Board of Film Certification, which banned the movie in Islamabad and cantonments areas, to the Federal Information Ministry and requested them to remove the ban. The filmmakers are also ready to cut the objectionable scenes which Central Boards believed that were promoting drug addictions.
