The release of Greta Gerwig’s film Barbie has been banned in Pakistan’s Punjab province. Pakistan’s Board of Film Certification is awaiting the nod from the Provincial Censor Board of Punjab province to re-release the film.

Actually, after cutting some dialogues of the film, the film was also released in Pakistan on July 21. But, due to the objectionable scenes in the film, now all the shows of the film have been removed from the theatre.

The Provincial Censor Board of Punjab has banned the screening of Barbie in Punjab considering some scenes of the film as objectionable. Farooq Mehmood, secretary of the Punjab Film Censor Board, told The Guardian that they will review the film once again before releasing it. However, he did not say that due to which scene the release of the film is getting delayed.

The approval of the Regional Censor Board is necessary to give the film a release certificate in Pakistan. According to media reports, this decision has been taken because of the homosexual theme in the film.

Some users have also tweeted about this on social media. A user has written that the lights of the theater were switched off in the middle of the show and the screening of the film was stopped midway.

Apart from Pakistan, Islamic countries like UAE, Egypt, Qatar, Iran and Saudi Arabia have also banned the film. At the same time, the release of the film has been banned in Russia and Vietnam.
