After Pakistan, now the Riteish Deshmukh and Pulkit Samrat starrer BANGISTAN is also banned in UAE. While the reason behind this ban is being stated that it is anti-muslim or anti-Pakistan and it deals with the controversial topic, the director of BANGISTAN Karan Anshuman maintains that it's a very positive film. According to Karan, BANGISTAN talks about relevant topics and it has very universal message.


“My film has nothing to do with India or Pakistan or any other country for that matter. It is set in a fictitious country. It is not a controversial topic. On the contrary, the film has a very relevant topic to talk about, the topic of terrorism or extremism or the idea of how these groups and people are spreading fear… It's a very positive film and trying to counter that. It's not trying to be controversial. It has a very universal message at the end of it. The way we have chosen to tell the story is very light and it goes from satire to slightly comic and later evolves into drama. It's an all-rounder and global film,” says the debutant director.

Ask him if the film offers any solution to terrorism and Karan says, “At the end of the film it provides a philosophy but it doesn't provide any solution to terrorism. In fact, no film does that. Any piece of art or movie title or film can't solve the problem. But some of them at least can take home a good message.”

BANGISTAN is a comedy about two blundering terrorists on a mission to change the world. Suicide bombers Hafeez Bin Ali/Ishwarchand Sharma (Deshmukh) and Allah Rakha Khan/Praveen Chaturvedi (Samrat) are sent on an explosive mission but realise that it's foolish to die and kill other people.

Produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani's Excel Entertainment, BANGISTAN is all set to hit the screens on August 7, 2015.
