The film Zindagi Tamasha, despite being cleared by all three censor boards for premier will now be assessed by Council of Islamic Ideology. The decision was taken by the federal government after Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) threatened to create unrest in the country if the film is to be released. Following the government’s decision, the TLP has decided to defer the protests.
Subsequently, all cinema exhibitors and distributors have been directed to avoid the film’s exhibition “till further decision” by the government. Meanwhile, director of Khoosat Films Private Limited, Irfan Ali Khoosat, has filed a petition against the Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) for “trying to interfere into the smooth running, public screening/releasing” of the movie Zindagi Tamasha.
