The makers of Total Dhamaal on Monday announced they will not release the multi-starrer comedy in Pakistan. Total Dhamaal is the third film in the Dhamaal franchise and a sequel to 2011 film Double Dhamaal.
The decision comes just days after a suicide bomber rammed an SUV laden with explosives into a bus in Pulwama, killing 40 CRPF jawans and injuring several others.
In light of the current situation the team of Total Dhamaal has decided to not release the film in Pakistan.
