- Race 3 will release worldwide on June 15 including in Pakistan
- Salman Khan has a strong fan base in Pakistan
- Some Pakistani distributors are not happy with the latest development
The said ban started two days before Eid and extended for two weeks after the festival, which meant even Rajkumar Hirani's Sanju, starring Ranbir Kapoor, came in the ambit. As of now, the ban has been lifted for all Indian films, which means Salman Khan's victory is also Ranbir Kapoor's gain.
The mid-day report stated that several film distributors are happy and are looking forward to a very green Eid, however, some film distributors are still against the release of Indian films in that duration as it would affect the business of local films.
Earlier a source told mid-day that the makers were concerned about the delayed release of Race 3 in Pakistan due to piracy issues. However, all is well that ends well. Salman Khan told reporters at an event to promote Race 3 that he's 'happy" because the film is release as per schedule in Pakistan, reported news agency PTI.
Race 3 also stars Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Jacqueline Fernandez and Daisy Shah. The film is directed by Remo D'Souza.
