Bajrangi Bhaijaan has been cleared by the Pakistan Central Censor Board. The Salman Khan starrer had generated a lot of hype initially with its release in Pakistan. However, after being cleared with a few cuts, the film is set to have an Eid release even on the other side of the border.

Interestingly, it is the first film around the Indo-Pak theme to get a clearance for a screening in Pakistan on Eid. Earlier, Salman Khan's 2012 Bollywood blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger was banned in Pakistan. The film had Katrina Kaif playing the character of an ISI agent.

The board reviewed the film fearing it to be anti-Pak, but found it non-objectionable. In his tweet, Fakhr-e-Alam, Official, Censor Board claimed that Bajrangi Bhaijaan "is not a negative or anti-Pakistan film." He posted the official certificate issued to the film in another tweet:

Deeming that the film is the "most positive film for Pakistan that Bollywood has produced," he further tweeted:

Also starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Kareena Kapoor Khan in other pivotal roles, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is about an Indian man's attempt to help a young, speech-impaired girl from Pakistan return to her homeland. The film is releasing on 17 July, 2015.
