Earlier, the actor also thanked Pakistan for allowing the movie to release here. To express his gratitude for clearing his film, the Bollywood megastar took to Twitter and thanked Fakhr-e-Alam, chairman of Sindh censor board.

Fakhr-e-Alam had tweeted that Bajrangi Bhaijaan is a positive movie made after a long time and was not a 'negative or anti-Pakistan film'.
On Wednesday, the Islamabad High Court dismissed a petition seeking directions to stop the exhibition of the film. Justice Aamer Farooq dismissed the petition on the grounds that the petitioner had no legal standing in the case and the petition lacked some documents.
Censor boards in Islamabad and Karachi have granted clearance to the movie to be released on Eid although with several cuts.
