Feroze Khan Wants Oscar Nominee ‘Joyland’ Banned in Pakistan

The Khaani star seems to thinks that it promotes the (anti-Islamic) LGBTQ agenda.

Showbiz’s controversial actor, Feroze Khan, is in hot water once again for demanding a ban on Pakistan’s first queer love film Joyland.

The Aye Mushte Khaak star thinks that it promotes the LGBTQ agenda in Pakistan, which is an Islamic country.

He also took to his Instagram account and shared that sanctions should be imposed on Joyland because it won the Queer Palm Award this summer.

Here is a screenshot of his post.

The star is already under severe criticism after his ex-wife, Alizeh Sultan, accused him of abuse, infidelity, degradation, and blackmail last month.

Joyland explores Pakistan’s newfound LGBTQ revolution and tells the story of the youngest son in a patriarchal family, who is expected to produce a baby boy with his wife, joins an erotic dance theater instead, and falls for the troupe’s director who is a transwoman.

Joyland world premiered at Cannes in Un Certain Regard as the festival’s first ever Pakistani film, this year. It went on to win the jury prize and the Queer Palm, and was also screened at the Zurich Film Festival last month, where it was nominated for the best international feature film.

The movie will be premiered in cinemas across Pakistan on 18 November.
