Web Desk: The Malaysian’s National Film Cencorship Board banned Padmaavat for touching on the sensitivities of Islam.

The chairman of the Censorship Board, Mohd Zamberi Abdul Aziz has said the Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film might offend Muslims in the country.

He quoted, “The storyline of the film touches on the sensitivities of Islam. That in itself is a matter of grave concern in Malaysia, a Muslim-majority country.”

Aziz said the film distributors had filed an appeal against the ban which would be taken by the Film Appeals Committee on January 30.

“Currently, LPF is unable to provide further comments as the film distributor has submitted an appeal to the appeals committee.”

“Therefore, further comments will only be issued after the appeals committee has made its decision,” Aziz said.

Pakistan Censor Board had cleared film without any single cut with a ‘U’ certification.
