Starring Jacqueline Fernandez, Rajesh Sharma and Riteish Deshmukh. Youtube link BBFC link IMDb

Two blundering terrorists with lofty ideologies, but ordinary talent, on a mission to change the world.

Pakistan: Banned

On July 25, Pakistan had banned the Riteish Deshmukh-Pulkit Samrat starrer after viewing the trailer. It is reported that the reason for the ban was that the film was conceived as anti-Pakistan

Singapore: Banned

Banned by the film censors but there is still the possibility of an appeal to the reviewing committee.

UAE: Banned

A day before its grand opening in Dubai, Karan Anshuman’s directorial debut, Bangistan, has been banned in United Arab Emirates.

The reason for the ban may be to do with religious sensitivities. In Inida protestors cited an ‘objectionable’ scene in which a character is dressed up as the Hindu God, Hanuman, and later seen indulging in terrorist activities.

The film has just been passed 12A uncut by the BBFC for moderate innuendo, threat, violence.
