Mumbai

: After the terrorist attacks on Indian soldiers in Uri a few days back, the relations between India and Pakistan have deteriorated. While political parties have threatened to stall films with Pakistan actors in it, the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPPA) have banned Pakistani artistes from working in the country till normalcy returns.

In such a situation, a film set against the backdrop of Pakistan or a character based in the country could also face some trouble. One such film reportedly is Sonakshi Sinha’s ‘Noor’ which is based on a novel about a Pakistani journalist where the actress was to play the role of the protagonist.

However, Sonakshi has denied that she is playing a character from the neighbouring country in the film. "All I can say is that I am not playing a Pakistani journalist in the film. The film is based on a book, which is written by a Pakistani author. The story has been adapted into a Mumbai backdrop," Sonakshi was quoted as saying at an event.

‘Noor’ also stars Purab Kohli, Kanan Gill among others and is gearing up for release on 7 April next year.
