Islamabad: Pakistani censors have banned advertisements for Bollywood star Akshay Kumar's latest film "Khiladi 786" because the number 786 is revered by some Muslims and could hurt their sentiments.
 
The Censor Board has directed cinema halls and distributors not to release the movie's trailers and to remove billboards for the film.
 
"Khiladi 786" is yet to be cleared by the censors for screening in Pakistan.
