In January, the federal government had given mandates to delay the arrival of the film ‘Zindagi Tamasha’. In wake of objections and protests from Tehreek-e-Labaik Pakistan (TLP), the film was reviewed for another audit by the Central Board of Film Censors of Pakistan (CBFC). The Censor Board invited the Islamic Council to review ‘Zindagi Tamasha’. The review meeting was set to happen on February 3rd, 2020.
However, the review is yet to be held which was conducted by Censor Board invited Islami Council to review Zindagi Tamasha, with the destiny of the film as yet remaining in a precarious situation. It creates the impression that all the partners associated with the review are accusing each other as to the postponement.
One of the CBFC representatives said that why the review meeting was not held yet and it looks like this issue won’t be settled in the coming days. Over about fourteen days have passed and nothing has been done right now. Two weeks was sufficient opportunity to lead the significant procedures.

In the meantime, an authority from the Punjab Censor Board has kept up that it is hanging tight for the CII and CBFC to arrive at their decision. “We are anticipating the choice by the CII and CBFC. We will tail them over this issue as the issue is serious,” said the authority of Punjab film and Censor Board.
Undoubtedly, it has kept up that the committee has presented all the subtleties of its four-part seat for the review and is looking out for the CBFC’s reaction.
“A week ago we sent a letter to the CBFC Chairman advising him of our four-part seat for the audit. We likewise mentioned him to mastermind the survey meeting. It is our data that the last has arrived at the Chairman yet we presently can’t seem to get an answer from his office,” said an authority of CII while looking for secrecy.
The CII had recently set up a four-part board of trustees that will audit the film and afterward present a report to committee Chairman Dr. Qibla Ayaz.
As per CII’s Media Coordinator Rana Zahid, the report will at that point be broke down by the executive just as 20 individuals from the CII.
The CBFC, then again, has denied that the letter being referred to was gotten. “CBFC didn’t get any letter from the side of CII. At the point when we get it then we will choose further in regards to the audit. We don’t have the film in our ownership. Simply after we get the letter from the CII, we will demand the filmmakers to present the Sarmad Khoosat’s movie Zindgi Tamasha,” said Danyal Gilani Chairman CBFC.
