While the whole of India couldn’t stop rolling with laughter looking at the antics of two on-screen self confessed homosexuals in Dostana, the Pakistanis were having it otherwise. The Lahore High Court had imposed a ban on the film stating that it has some highly objectionable “gay contents”, following a writ petition filed by Khuram Khan. The petitioner maintained that Dostana promoted gay marriage which is prohibited in all religions.
