Director Kabir Khan is optimistic that his directorial next Ek Tha Tiger will be cleared by Pakistan's censor board. Buzz was that the film would be banned in Pakistan after the trailers were not allowed to screen on satellite television.
Since, the film is about at Indian RAW agent, it was assumed that the film was anti-Pakistan. However, the director of the Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif starrer maintains that this is not true. He was recently quoted saying in an interview that the film doesn't have any derogatory references to Pakistan and that he's quite sure that the film will get a release if it's passed by the censor board.
The reasons why Kabir thinks that the film should get a release is that Salman has a huge fan following in Pakistan and that it is releasing during the Eid week.
