Bollywood film cancels Pakistan release after Pulwama attacks

Muscat: Bollywood film Total Dhamaal will not release in Pakistan after the recent Pulwama terror attacks, film actor Ajay Devgn has confirmed.

Devgn, who is starring in the much-expected Bollywood film, tweeted, “In light of the current situation the team of Total Dhamaal has decided to not release the film in Pakistan.”

The news comes just days after Pakistani insurgent groups were implicated by the Indian government over the attacks on a Central Reserve Police Force in the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir, which led to the loss of the lives of 40 Indian paramilitary personnel.

Indian actress Madhuri Dixit, who is also starring in Total Dhamaal, had previously offered her condolences to the families of those who had lost their loved ones in the attacking, saying, “Words can't describe the pain that the families of our martyred soldiers would be going through. Expressing my sincere condolences to everyone in grief. I hope & pray for a terror free world.”

Considered to be the sequel to the smash hits Dhamaal and Double Dhamaal, Total Dhamaal is expected to release on 22 February 2019, and stars Ajay Devgn, Madhuri Dixit, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, Javed Jaffrey and Esha Gupta. Boman Irani, Rajpal Yadav and Johnny Lever also star.
