Whether a movie is fictional or not, it is probably better to stick to some obvious facts, especially when it is related to India’s western neighbour Pakistan. Making such movies needs intense research. However, sometimes producers, directors and editors tend to overlook certain facts that might get noticed.
Something similar happened when a recent movie starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mithun Chakraborty got some facts wrong. A Pakistani computer scientist and academic Umar Saif tweeted out the mistake along with the snippet of the movie. “Arfa technology park making waves beyond borders. P.S. Bollywood needs better script writers,” read the tweet.

Wondering what’s wrong with the clip? A scene in the movie Genius shows Pakitan’s popular Arfa technology park, which is an IT building, as that of the country’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). The movie clip has created quite a buzz on social media, with many trolling Bollywood for getting basic facts wrong.

So Arfa Kareem Software Technology Park got the headquarters of ISI too. Lmao!

More funnier is that the building is shown to be in Islamabad, its not the script writer but the movie editor that is responsible for such obvious blunder.
