Would Katrina’s Pakistani Nationality in Tiger Zinda Hai Be Allowed?

When  Kabir Khan’s  Ek Tha Tiger was released  5 years  ago, times were different. The political situation  between India and Pakistan  was much less volatile . And  the film could get away with Katrina Kaif playing  a Pakistani national.

Now with all that has happened at the border,  it is going to  be tough to take Katrina’s Pakistani agent Zoya past the censor board in India.

According to  a source very close to the CBFC  there is an unofficial ban on all Indo-Pak romances/ relationships.

Says  the  informed source, “If  you remember what happened with Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil , Anushka Sharma’s  character Alizeh was  from Pakistan. But after the surgical attacks and the escalated  hostilities  between the  two countries,  her nationality was  quickly changed and she became  an Indian Muslim from Lucknow.”

So does  the  informed source  see Katrina’s Zoya’s nationality being changed?

“It is likely. Guidelines clearly do not allow this kind of  a cross-border merger,” says  the  source.

Wonder what would have happened to Yash Chopra’s Veera Zara  if he had made it today.
