As per a report, "Looks like the makers of Calendar Girls have struck a chord with Pakistani nationals, but not in a good way. Apparently, the film that is set to release on 25th September, has received a Fatwa from Pakistan due to the content, which they say, portrays the country in bad light."

Fatwa against 'Calendar Girls'

"One of the girls in the film features as being of Pakistani origin and delivers a dialogue - "Pakistani ladkiyan bhi utne hi bold kaam karti hai jitni baki ladkiya karti hai; balki kabhi kabhi usse zyada bhi."

They feel the dialogue portrays Pakistani girls and culture in false pretence, and the movie will be a bad influence on young girls in their country, " the report further added.

Though the Pakistani officials may put a ban on the film in their country, Madhur Bhandarkar has claimed that his film is not anti-Pakistani.
