KARACHI: Bollywood filmmaker Yash Chopra’s last film Jab Tak Hai Jaan may not release in Pakistan since it will see Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan play the role of an army man involved in an operation in Kashmir.

The trailer of the film has already been stopped from being screened on various Pakistani TV channels, the Express Tribune reported.

The ministry of national regulation and services has denied reviewing any content related to the film.

“We have received no application to review the content,” the newspaper quoted Iftikhar Durrani, adviser to the ministry of national regulation and services, as saying.

He also denied any reports suggesting that the trailer has been banned, saying, “There is a Standard Operating Procedure for trailers to be banned and most distributors never risk their capital on it.”

Veer-Zara, Chopra’s second last film released in 2004, was also banned because it revolved around an Indian pilot played by Shahrukh, who falls in love with a Pakistani girl, essayed by Bollywood actress Preity Zinta.

Recently, actors Saif Ali Khan-Kareena Kapoor starrer Agent Vinod and Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif’s Ek Tha Tiger were not cleared for screening in Pakistan as both involved the protagonists as RAW agents.
