Yash Chopra's much-awaited film "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" is weeks away from its release in India, but people in Pakistan are likely to face some disappointment.

According to reports, "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" might not see a release in Pakistan.

The movie features Shahrukh Khan as the lead actor, who plays the role of a composed and dutiful army officer named Samar in Kashmir. The movie also features Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma as the lead actresses.

"The film may get banned in Pakistan because it involves Shah Rukh Khan in an army operation in Kashmir," a source told the The Times of India. It seems that Pakistan's censor board has become stricter in showcasing Bollywood films in the country.

Earlier, Saif Ali Khan's "Agent Vinod" and Salman Khan's "Ek Tha Tiger" were banned in Pakistan.

Buzz is that the trailer of the romantic film is also banned from being screened on several TV channels across the border.

"The trailer too has been stopped from being screened on various TV channels in Pakistan. The movie shows SRK as part of a bomb disposal squad in the Indian Army who is up to some serious action in Kashmir, which may be the reason it might be banned," the source added.

The two-minute, 30-second trailer begins with a poem and shows Shahrukh riding a bullet. 

The movie holds special importance for Indian audiences as it is the last film of the legendary director Yash Chopra who passed away on Sunday due to multiple organ failure. It also marks the return of the Yash Chopra-Shahrukh Khan Jodi after a gap of seven years.
