Sanam Saeed supports Durj’s release

By Huma Yasir

The movie Durj has been banned by the censor board. Shamoon Abbasi’s upcoming film ‘Durj’ has been banned by Pakistan. Initially, the film was cleared by Punjab and Sindh censor board but later federal censor board didn’t clear. The movie is based on the true story of a pair of brothers who dug up over 100 graves and cannibalized the corpses.
Shamoon Abbasi shared, “We never wanted to glorify cannibalism. It [has] a storyline, and in the film, we researched the mindset of these people and we tried to get at the root cause and the thought process so that others can understand how they think and act.”
“It’s a very sensitive film with no blood or gore, it’s not the type of film to be banned outright as such, so I am not sure what happened,” he added. Sanam Saeed came out and questioned why the movie Durj has been banned by Pakistan when all Bollywood movies with all their innuendos are played? Why are films like #Durj Banned. If Hollywood films with all their sexual innuendos and violence and dark topics can play in our cinemas then why can’t our independent out of the box films like Durj be played?? questioned Sanam.
