Bollywood films and the CBFC involvement in it create news on daily basis. It seems like Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger Zinda Hai too might face the strict diktat by Central Board of Film Certification. This time, the issue is Katrina Kaif’s character Zoya’s nationality. In the film, Zoya is a Pakistani spy and this may be changed as per the reports in India Today Showbiz. It all started when Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil had faced a wrath from political party MNS for the involvement of Pakistani actors in it, post Uri attack. In a video, Karan Johar had mentioned that he won’t work with any Pakistani actors after this. Now again, Katrina’s character in the film may face hurdles.
A source told the portal, “If you remember, in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Anushka Sharma’s character Alizeh was from Pakistan. But after the surgical strikes and the escalated hostilities between the two countries, her nationality was quickly changed, and she became an Indian Muslim from Lucknow.” [ALSO READ: Salman Khan And Katrina Kaif’s Tiger Zinda Hai Has Already Defeated Prabhas’ Baahubali 2: The Conclusion]
When asked about whether there will be any changes post this, the source added, “It’s likely. The guidelines clearly don’t allow this kind of a cross-border merger.” The source also added that Indo- Pak romances face an unofficial ban as of now. The previous installment already mentioned Zoya as a Pakistani girl. Now that the film has already been shot entirely, it is to be seen if the maker Ali Abbas Zafar does any changes.
