Most of the films based on terrorism or Indo-Pak relations get banned in either countries inspite of their content. The recently released 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' proved this wrong because the movie was loved by people on both sides of the border. But Kabir Khan was not lucky with 'Phantom' and the movie is banned in Pakistan even before it's release.
The movie deals with the aftermath of the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai and Saif Ali Khan plays the role of a RAW agent who tracks down the terror mastermind hidden in Pakistan. Talking about the controversy surrounding his film Saif attended a press conference and said, “ I had a feeling that Phantom would be banned right from the start. I am not surprised because I always knew that they would ban the film without fully seeing it as they have habit of assuming things.”
Well, this is quite a bold statement from the Chote Nawab! Hope he doesn't run into another controversy yet again.
