‘Lafangey’ Banned for Obscene Language and Gestures

The Pakistan Board of Film Censors (CBFC) has banned the release on Eid-ul-Adha horror comedy film ‘Lafangey’ due to obscene language and sexual gestures.

The trailer of Sami Khan, Mani, Saleem Meraj and Mubeen Gabol’s film was released at the end of last June and it was announced that it would be released on Eid-ul-Adha.

The story of the horror comedy film revolves around 4 young people who have big dreams but do not know how to fulfill them.

It is difficult to understand the story of the film from the released trailer, however, there are indications that the film will show not only dark comedy but also horror and romance.

In the film directed by Abdul Khaliq Khan and produced by Tariq Habib Rind, Nazish Jahangir has played the role of Bhootni but now the Central Film Censor Board has banned its screening.

The film’s director Abdul Khaliq Khan and the producer expressed frustration over the ban on the release of ‘Lafangey’, saying that the board had the authority to release controversial dialogues but instead of doing so, the board stopped showing it.

Muhammad Arshad Munir, chairman of the Film Censor Board, while talking to ‘Independent Urdu’, confirmed that the screening of ‘Lafangey’ has banned.
