Chairman SBFC Khalid Bin Shaheen took notice of the illegal screening of the Indian film Pathaan


Sindh Board of Film Censors (SBFC) has said that no private party or individual is entitled to make or arrange a public or private exhibition of the film by means of a cinematograph unless the such film has been duly certified for public exhibition by Censor Board.

In a media statement, the board informed that it has come to knowledge via social media that Fireworks Events are going to organize a public exhibition of the film Pathaan on February 4, 2023, at Plot No. 34-C, first-floor Khayaban-e-Shahbaz Karachi. In this connection, Fireworks Events are going to book tickets for said film on cell phone number 0334-3805539.


Chairman SBFC Khalid Bin Shaheen said, ‘Section 4 (10) of Sindh Motion Pictures Act 2011 regulates public or private exhibition of film and no any can exhibit film without certification by Board’. It is, therefore, an appropriate exhibition of the film ‘Pathaan’ that should immediately be cancelled. In case you have been found to violate provisions of the aforementioned Act, such violation would amount to punishment as provided under section 18(1) which reads without lawful authority, any film which has not been certified by the board cannot be exhibited, altered, tempered, shall be punishable with imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years, or with fine which may Rs 100,000 or with both. In case of a continuing offence, with a further fine which may extend to Rs 10,000 for each day during which the offence continues, it added.

Khalid Bin Shaheen while talking exclusively to Daily National Courier said that whoever intends to cross the legal lines as set by the censor board will have to face dire consequences as at present screening of ‘Pathaan’ has been categorically restricted by the concerned authority in light of the law.
