Aamir Refuses To Release Dangal In Pakistan

Pakistani distributors had approached Aamir to release the film in Pakistan but their censor board made some demands of their own. The Pakistan censor board wanted the scene with the Indian flag and the national anthem to be snipped from Dangal, but Aamir Refused to do it. He could not see why the scenes should be removed, given that the film had no reference to Pakistan and was an essential part of the script.

Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal is the story of Haryanvi wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, and his strugle to train his daughters Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari to become world-champions in the sport, amidst opposition from a patriarchal society.
