The Indian adaptation of the Mukherji’s Bengali film Rajkahini, is set in the backdrop of the India-Pakistan Partition. The film will not be released in Pakistan because it portrays the country in a negative light. Producer Mahesh Bhatt has even reportedly written to the Pakistan government to allow the release of the film. However, he has yet to receive their permission.
