Salman Khan’s latest blockbuster, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan,’ is bringing in good business in both India and Pakistan. However, according to a report on Mid-Day.com, it may be that the film is becoming a threat for cinema owners in the neighbouring country-Pakistan. According to the tabloid, the chairman of Pakistan Censor Board, Fakhr-e-Alam, has claimed to have received serious threats for certifying Indian movies.

On Twitter, Alam stated that the film is not anti-Pakistan among other statements of praise for Salman’s film. Some hates seem to have not liked this appreciation and now, Alam has requested cinema owners to increase security around their property.

A source was quoted in the report as saying that some people think that the film has anti-Pak implications and hence they are not pleased with the Censor Board’s decision to allow the screening of ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ in their country. Alam is now seen as a traitor on social networking sites. He responded to the tweet saying, “Well NOW I am getting LIFE threats…I guess every Pakistani who is buying tickets is also a traitor then.” [sic]
