Karachi: `Happy Bhaag Jaaygi,` after getting a good hype and nice promotions in Pakistan, will not be released there today.
While the film has not yet been slapped with an official ban, the ball is longer in the court of provincial censor boards, reports the Express Tribune.
The Central Board for Film Certification (CBFC) of Pakistan could not reach a unanimous decision over the fate of the film due to technical differences between the board members.
To sort it out, as per the regular proceedings of the board, a full-board was called to review the film.
"The full board had approved the film for public viewing with a 8-1 ratio in favour of the film," said Pakistan Censor Board chairman Mobashir Hasan.
"Under the Motion Pictures Ordinance of 1979 and Censorship of Film Rules act of 1980, the ministry of Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage has the right review the board`s decision," he explained.
The movie, starring Abhay Deol, Diana Penty, Ali Fazal and Jimmy Shergill, also marks Pakistani actor Momal Sheikh`s Bollywood debut.
