Arjun Kapoor’s latest film India’s Most Wanted will not be releasing a Dubai as the Censor Board has raised concerns over a dialogue in the film. Since there is no time to prepare fresh print after beeping the dialogue, it has been decided that the film will not release along with other regions in the world.
Commenting on the same, a source informed entertainment portal Bollywood Hungama, “In India’s Most Wanted there is a dialogue that says most terrorists are based either in Pakistan or Dubai, and it was this reference that didn’t go down too well with the censors there. Had this dialogue been deleted the film would be permitted to release, but the makers of the film did not budge and hence it will not release.”
Confirming the same Raj Kumar Gupta, the director of India’s Most Wanted said in a media statement, “Yes the film will not release in Dubai. There were some issues which could not be sorted and hence this decision.” When prodded whether it was the said dialogue that caused the issue, Raj Kumar Gupta added, “Yes the said dialogue is there in the film and it is a factual one based on the research that has been conducted. So we did not want to do away with the dialogue and decided on retaining it in the film even if it entailed a non-release in Dubai.”
India’s Most Wanted that stars Arjun Kapoor is slated to release across 1,200 screens in India later this week on May 24. Based on the story of “India’s Osama”, the film revolves around a group of people who set out to apprehend a dreaded terrorist without any weapons. Moreover, surprisingly, the movie does not have any female lead.
The movie's release is going to clash with the release of the Vivek Oberoi starrer PM Narendra Modi.
