Three weeks after the Ashir Azeem’s directorial ‘Maalik’ premiered at theatres across Pakistan, the federal information ministry and Sindh government has slapped a ban on the film. No reason has been specified in the notification released, but the film has been accused by some quarters of promoting ethnic racism and showing Pakistani politicians in bad light.
“The information ministry reserves the right to ban any film at any time. Maalik has been banned because it shows a former chief minister as a man of corruption and opulence,” a ministry official, requesting anonymity, told a local media.
Though many movies had faced ban earlier by censor board of Pakistan but this is the first time government has intervened in the matter. Pakistani government has directly banned Ashir Azeem’s latest release.
Local cinemas have cancelled the movie’s shows with immediate effect and are refunding the tickets following the ban.
In a series of tweets, Ashir Azeem condemn the ban on his movie,
“Giving my film a political /lingustics spin delibrate to divert attention from the real message of the film”
“I wrote MAALIK 12 year ago its my film invoving ISPR in this a delibrate attempt to divert focus from real issues”
“Suddenly cinemas Sindhi decide to take MAALIK off screen ? free will? ”
Lahore High Court on Monday issued notices to the Ministry of Information, Broadcasting & National Heritage and others for May 17, on two identical petitions challenging the ban on screening of film “Maalik”.
Justice Shams Mehmood Mirza issued notices on petitions filed by Leader of Opposition in Punjab Assembly Mian Mehmood ur Rasheed and Munir Ahmad.
Earlier, the petitioners’ counsel submitted that after a few days of its premier, the federal ministry issued a notification, slapping a ban on exhibition of the film for which it was not empowered. After the 18th Amendment, such powers had been transferred to the provinces, he contended and pleaded the court to set aside the ban being illegal.
The court, after hearing initial arguments, issued notices to the respondents for May 17 and sought a reply
It may be mentioned that the court had already issued notices to the respondents on an identical petition earlier.

KARACHI: Bollywood director Kabir Khan said he wants to make a film in Pakistan.
Visiting Pakistan to participate in a conference, the Bajrangi Bhaijaan director told on Tuesday that politics stands in the way of cultural exchange between the two countries. “But you see, politics will stay the same. Artists should be allowed to travel and work freely,” he maintained.
The film-maker said he had visited Lahore a few months back and that this is his first time in Karachi. “My film Bajrangi Bhaijaan received a lot of appreciation in Pakistan for which I am grateful. The purpose of the film really was to bring the people closer,” he added.
He says extremists of both the countries do not want the situation to improve. “Also, whenever a terrorist attack happens, the media does not treat the matter with care and instead raises a furore. “I urge Pakistani film-makers to come to India to make films. Politics indeed is a hindrance in this exchange and I think our governments should ensure the interests of the artist community are protected
He said Pakistani actors and musicians have made quite a name for themselves in Indian cinema. “The more we collaborate, the more it will help improve the situation.” Kabir said participation in the conference is just an excuse. “I was invited to come to Pakistan hence I did. Even in future, I will never turn down any such invitations,” he added
