Pak film depicting RAW agents sets cash registers ringing
ENI Bureau New Delhi: While Indian films continue to target Pakistan spy agency ISI for all the wrongdoings in its hinterland, it seems that the arch-rivals have chosen to retaliate in their own manner.
A Pakistani film revolving around the theme of terrorism in the country from India has set new record openings at the box office, beating the takings of Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan starrer Chennai Express at Eid ul Fitr two months back.
Waar, which stars Pakistani actor-director Shaan, was released on Wednesday and raked in approximately 20 million rupees on its first two days, a record for any film released in the country. Said to be the most expensive Pakistani film ever to be made, the flick is rumoured to be partly funded by the military, a charge denied by the film director Bilal Lashari.
The film is about Pakistan’s fight against terror but seems to lay the blame for everything bad happening in the country at India’s doorstep.
The script revolves around a plot by “Indian agents” to carry out the biggest ever blast in Pakistan. (With Agency Inputs)
