Most of us would go the mile for our friends, but sometimes the question becomes -- how long is that mile?
While Nana Bhai left a void when he passed away, and Faraaz’s life ended suddenly at such a tender age, they live on in our hearts.
While it has recently been reported that a few Bollywood films will be approved for import in Bangladesh, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has now sent a notice that “Faraaz”—a Bollywood film about the Holey Artisan attack on July 1, 2016—will not be allowed to screen in Bangladesh.
After gaining clearance from the Delhi Court, Hansal Mehta’s directorial film, “Faraaz” is ready to appear in about a hundred cinema halls across India, today. Based on the Holey Artisan terrorist attack in 2016, the film has been a topic of much controversy in Bangladesh.
How is it that such a seasoned director did not seek consent from the victims’ families when making Faraaz?
Hansal Mehta’s film “Faraaz”—which is based on the Holey Artisan terrorist attack of 2016—has been cleared for release by the Delhi High Court. The court has refused to block the release of the film, as requested by some of the victim’s family members. Now, “Faraaz” is all set to release in theatres tomorrow.
Earlier, the official trailer for Hansal Mehta's thriller film, "Faraaz", was released. The film is said to be based on the tragic Holey Artisan café incident, which shook the country to the core on July 1, 2016.
As Bollywood gets ready to release “Faraaz”, a movie based on the Holey Artisan attack, Mostofa Sarwar Farooki’s “Saturday Afternoon”—based on the same event—is still stuck in censor board limbo.
Mostofa Sarwar Farooki referred to this statement and posted on social media, expressing his rage against the responsible authorities who are still remaining silent for the release of "Saturday Afternoon".
