Mumbai, Aug. 1 (ANI): After Varun Dhawan, his co-star John Abraham expressed disagreement over banning their latest outing 'Dishoom' in Pakistan.

According to the 43-year-old actor, who portrays cop Kabir Shergill, there is no point behind the ban.

"I have told it even earlier that this film is not anti-Pakistan. Our antagonist in the film 'Wagah' is not someone from India or Pakistan. We have clearly said that in the film. So I don't think there's any point to ban the movie in Pakistan," he told media here yesterday.

Varun, who is seen playing Junaid Ansari, took to Twitter on Saturday to post, "Really upset that 'Dishoom' is banned in Pakistan. I don't think the film eventually shows any country in a bad light. It's a wrong decision."

The movie, which is getting a good response in the nation due to its masala-content, is about abduction of India's top batsman Viraj before Indo-Pak match and two police officials from either side of the Arabian Sea team up for a 36-hour manhunt. (ANI)
