LAHORE: The Pakistan Film Censor Board has censored and cleared Shoaib Mansoor’s second full-length feature film, Bol.

According to a source in the censor board, the film was reviewed by the board on Monday in Lahore. The film is expected to release at the end of January 2011.

Mansoor’s first feature film, Khuda Kay Liye, starred Shaan, Fawad Khan and Iman Ali.

Bol stars Pakistani singer Atif Aslam as well as Mahira Khan and Umaima Abbasi. While Mansoor has not revealed anything about the film so far, Aslam told The Express Tribune in an interview in September that he plays a doctor in the film and has contributed two songs to the soundtrack. He said at the time that the film “was being made for a good cause.”

A censor board official told The Express Tribune, “I can tell you right now that the movie is really impressive and the music is good too.” He declined to provide any details about the film’s storyline.

Zehba Musharraf Ali | 13 years ago | Reply This is indeed a proud moment for the failing Pakistani film industry. This is a brilliant opportunity for Shoaib Mansoor to plan the publicity tour of the film with all the actors & actresses for around the world. There could be mini premiers in the major capitals of America. All the cast deserve a Red Carpet treatment, also do publicize the immense talent Pakistan is capable. Right now the news from Pakistan is the gloom and doom with the recent car bomb in Karachi. The world need to know that in spite of these major hardships the people of Pakistan are able to produce excellent celluloid and music. The Pakistan embassy does very little to promote Pakistan and if it does the west coast where in Texas and California where many desi's reside we do not see any of it. This exposure can help our artistic talent open the doors into Hollywood for India as usual has been Pakistan in advancing in this arena. Express Tribune needs to let us in America know when we can expenct "bol" to hit the screen.
