Pakistani Women Are Upset About The Ban On Veere Di Wedding & We're Not Surprised

Veere Di Wedding has had all our attention for the past few weeks. Ever since the trailer was released, everyone’s been talking about the all female-lead film starring Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania. The audience, however, has been divided into two parts, some who are absolutely thrilled about the fact that the film is focused on four women and their realistic, crass, flawed but powerful and strong-willed characters. The other side is of the opinion that the movie is nothing but a vulgar chick flick. The movie has been creating quite the buzz and opening conversations related to the superficial expectations people have of women, not just in real life but on the big screen as well.

The latest news about the movie, however, revolved around it being banned in Pakistan due to its “vulgarities and sexual dialogues”. This is the fourth film to be banned in Pakistan this year after  Padman, Pari and Raazi. While a lot of people accepted the decision made by the Pakistani censors, women weren’t so pleased with the decision and rightfully so.

Some even took to Twitter to express their discontent, have a look!

Women have voiced their opinions loud and clear. It’s high time societies broaden their horizons and accept women in roles that are real and also been pulled-off by “men” for “far too long”.

Amidst all other conversations, Hello Pakistan speculated that the ban might just be temporary. Here’s what they tweeted:

A movie being a hit or a miss is beside the point but we hope, women-centric and unconventional content like this is at least given the opportunity to reach the audience who is willing to give it a chance.
