Bangistan producer Ritesh Sidhwani said that the film has been denied entry in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Directed by Karan Anshuman, Bangistan features Riteish Deshmukh, Pulkit Samrat and Jacqueline Fernandez. The film has been banned by the UAE censor board which found the content of the film as offensive. They have raised a strong objection to the release of the film, according to a statement from the film's representative.
"It is very disappointing that the censor board finds the film offensive as there is no such content in the film. We shall be sending it to the re-examining committee," said Ritesh.
The film, which was mostly shot in Poland and Ladakh, is about two suicide bombers, Hafeez Bin Ali Ishwarchand Sharma (Riteish) and Allah Rakha Khan Praveen Chaturvedi (Pulkit), who have been brainwashed into an explosive mission but eventually realise that the death wish is a futile exercise.
Bangistan is scheduled to release in India on August 7.
