Yami Gautam led Article 370 has opened in India with a positive response from the audience as well as critics. But it has come as a shock for many as the film has been banned in all the Gulf countries. After Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone starrer Fighter which released in January this year, Article 370 is the second film that has been banned in the Gulf countries.

The impact of Gulf countries' ban on Article 370

According to Hindustan Times, after Fighter, Article 370 is the 2nd Hindi film to be banned in the Gulf countries. The more shocking part is that two films have been banned in just 2 months of the year. In the times when Indian cinema enjoys a huge fanbase in Gulf countries, banning major films like Article 370 and Fighter comes as a huge surprise. While it impacts a big chunk of the overseas business of these films, it also keeps the audience deprived of being able to watch the films in cinemas.

Yami Gautam on shooting for Article 370 in Kashmir

Yami Gautam who plays an intelligence officer in Article 370 was pregnant while shooting for the film. A major part of the film has been shot in Kashmir. During an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, the actress talked about her experience of shooting the film in the valley and said "As an actor, it was a mix of a lot of emotions. Of course, I have not been raised there. Aditya (Dhar) is a Kashmiri Pandit. I am from Himachal. I would have had a little different point of view; like an outsider so to say. But having known him and his family, and hearing from his relatives, and so many stories firsthand, I had mixed feelings."
