Why Aamir denied to release Dangal in Pak?
The Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapati Raju had to face tense moment in Lok Sabha as Shiva Sena MPs surrounded him in the house. The MPs are angry over minister’s firm refusal to intervene on the flying ban on their colleague Ravindra Gaikwad, who had assaulted an airline manager two weeks ago in a fight over a business class seat.
In an unprecedented scene, Ministers were seen shielding Raju in the Lok Sabha as Anand Geete and other Sena MPs surrounded him.
The dramatic developments were taken place when the house adjourned for a brief time. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and other ministers rushed to Raju’s side and to help save the situation.
The Shiva Sena MP Geete was seen shouting that no flight will take off from Mumbai. The minister, however, said the law would take its course. Aircraft are machines where people fly and safety is important. Safety will not be compromisedDangal star Aamir Khan, one of India’s biggest superstar, has once again proved his patriotism for mother country- India. The actor and producer, who pocketed humongous money with his recent blockbuster Dangal, has reportedly denied the film to a Pakistani distributor, stopping its theatrical release in the neighboring nation.
The star actor, who initially agreed and signed a contract with Pak distributor, has called off the agreement after getting to know about the Pakistan censor board’s kinky suggestion to trim climax portions where Geetha Singh Phogat (played by Fatima Sana Sheik in the film) displays India’s national flag and sings our national anthem.
Abashed after learning that development, co-producer Aamir Khan decided not to release to release the blockbuster film in Pakistan. According to him, the film based on a wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat has got no content against Pakistan and all it had was a real story of an Indian wrestler.
Had our Perfectionist agreed for release of Dangal in Pak, he would have certainly pocketed a handful of money – somewhere between 10-12 Crores. But, he doesn’t want to make money at the cost of losing vital tone of Dangal.
Those in the know are aware that Indian Film Association banned actors from Pakistan while they stopped to release our films in Pak after Uri Attacks at the border. Starting this year, Pakistan laid off the ban and began to release few Indian films.
This praiseworthy act of Aamir Khan, which is been put out by his manager, is inviting accolades from all over the country.
