Salman Khan’s 'Ek Tha Tiger' promos go off air in Pakistan

Pakistan stops airing of Salman Khan’s 'Ek Tha Tiger' promos. What’s the reason?

The cable operators in Pakistan have reportedly been directed to stop the airing of the promos and trailers of Salman Khan’s upcoming Hindi film Ek Tha Tiger, on the ground that it tarnishes the image of its spy agency, ISI

In the film’s teaser, there’s a clear mention of the proxy war played out daily between Indian intelligence agency RAW and Pakistan’s spy agency ISI. Salman Khan plays a RAW agent in Ek Tha Tiger. He’s sent on a mission to keep an eye on a college professor suspected of trying to sell dangerous missile technology to terrorists in Pakistan.

Pak’s media watchdog, Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA), issued a letter to all satellite TV channels and cable networks last week cautioning them that the film is reportedly based on the activities of ISI and RAW.

The letter added: “Besides, basic theme of the story revolves around Inter- Services Intelligence (ISI) agency with the objective to tarnish the image of state owned institution.

“The matter should be given utmost preference and due care be ensured to uphold the country's image and any unintentional lapse in this regard be avoided,” the letter added.

In other words, the media watchdog has directed the channels and cable networks to "refrain from airing promos" of Ek Tha Tiger till a no-objection certificate is issued by the Pakistani censor board.

Ek Tha Tiger is slated to release on August 15. The film stars Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in leading roles. It is directed by Kabir Khan, who’s made films like New York and Kabul Express.
