Aishwarya Rai Bachchan And Irrfan Khan Starrer Jazbaa To Release In Pakistan


Unlike many other movies, news is Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Irrfan Khan starrer Jazbaa to release in Pakistan in around 50 theatres. This is a bit of a surprise as movies like Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Phantom, and Calendar Girls were not released in the country.

A source informed, “In fact, the release is turning out to be a really planned one in Pakistan.”  He also added, “From day one, the makers of Jazbaa (Zee Studios) were clear that Pakistan was a territory they had to explore. It doesn’t have anything to warrant any kind of argument, resistance or protest against it. It is a dramatic thriller and there is no controversial content whatsoever in there that would have been influenced by the political relationship between the two countries. It is a pure and simple business decision for distributors in Pakistan and producers in India. Period.”

A trade observer was quick to point out, “Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has a huge fan following in Pakistan and with Jazbaa bringing her back in action, it was quite rudimentary to have her arrival announced in style. As for Irrfan, he is a global star today. When other countries are accepting him with open arms, there was no reason why Pakistan won’t do the same.”

Jazbaa releases on October 9th 2015 in India.
