“Tickets already sold can be refunded from our box office. We apologize for any inconvenience caused,” it further added.

Speaking to a known media channel, Atrium Cinemas owner Nadeem Mandviwalla said the horror film was cleared by provincial censor boards, however, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) banned it.

“Pari was cleared by the Sindh Board and Punjab Board, however, the Islamabad Board (CBFC) banned it. Although the film could have released in Sindh and Punjab barring Islamabad, the distributors decided to not release it,” Mandviwalla added.

The Atrium cinemas owner further said the CBFC banned the film as it reportedly contains objectionable sequences where Quranic verses have been used.

Sources in the CBFC confirmed the Anushka Sharma film had been banned as it was “against Islamic values.”

“The film not only mixed Quranic verses with Hindu chants but also portrayed Muslims in a negative light as they were shown using Quranic verses to do black magic,” the source said.
