The post comes a day after the film was banned in Pakistan owing to its “vulgar content”.
Sources in the Central Board of Film Censors (CBFC) had said, “Veere Di Wedding is not a family film and that is why we cannot clear it.”
The film with Kareena Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor in leading roles was scheduled to release in Pakistan on June 1.
Fans excited to watch the film expressed their anger on Twitter stating that it was not justified.
A sex predator like #SaadatBashir can get away with molesting 80 girls but Veere Di Wedding gets banned for vulgar content. Life is strange in the Land of the Pure.

Censor board has confirmed that #VeereDiWedding is going to be banned in Pakistan because of “vulgarity” and also “theme.”
A film about a bunch of badass ladies being banned by a bunch of grumpy men, why am I not surprised?

Film ‘Veere Di Wedding’ has been banned in Pakistan? So it’s okay to show series on TV where female characters are crying their eyes out or getting slapped, but a film that shows women having fun and expressing themselves is vulgar?

Apparently, the Censor Board deems any film that openly speaks about women’s bodies and sexuality as vulgar. They did it with #PadMan and they’re doing it again with #VeereDiWedding: https://t.co/QbSs2KzS9S
