Karachi, July 03:

The Pakistan Film Censor Board has banned the exhibition of Dhanush and Sonam Kapoor starrer Raanjhanaa because of its alleged "controversial theme".

The Central Board of Film Censors in Pakistan banned the film shortly before its scheduled release, Chief Executive Officer of IMGC Global Entertainment Amjad Rasheed, the importer of the film said.

Earlier the Censor Board had also banned films like Ek Tha Tiger, GI Joe, Agent Vinod for their controversial themes and "anti-Pakistan" sentiments.

Rasheed said that he received a letter from CBFC with directives to shelve the film's release.

"The letter from CBFC states that the film portrays an inapt image of a Muslim girl (played by Sonam Kapoor) falling in love with a Hindu man and having an affair with him."

Anand L Rai directed film was scheduled to release during the last week of June.

Pakistani singer Shiraz Uppal has also lent his voice for the title track of the film, composed by music maestro AR Rahman.
