Freedom of speech is a fundamental right and should be cultivated in the realms of the law.”

Chupke Chupke actor Butt tweeted that he hopes there’s a proper investigation into “how and why there was an attempt to ban a film already certified and board-approved” in the first place.

On Saturday, JI Senator Mushtaq Ahmed Khan shared a copy of the notice dated Nov. 11, which reads that the Central Board of Film Censors in Islamabad granted the censorship certificate on Aug. 17 this year.
