The censorship board refused to give a clearance certificate to Abhishek Sharma’s latest comedy film Tere Bin Laden.

The film was to be screened in Pakistan on the 16th of July, but the censor board banned its screening due to security reasons.

The full panel of the censor board watched the film and raised the objection that the film has Osama Bin Laden as a central character, so it cannot be presented in cinemas. The film stars Pakistani singer Ali Zafar, who is playing the role of a journalist desperate to migrate to the US.
