Pakistan's censor board today banned the screening of Sanjay Dutt's "Policegiri" and "Man Of Steel" though no specific reasons were cited for the decision.

A press release issued by the Central Film Censor Board only said the ban was imposed as the films violated the Motion Pictures Ordinance of 1979.

Both movies were released in cinema halls in major Pakistani cities several weeks ago. They are still being screened in some cities like Karachi and Lahore.

"Policegiri", which stars Sanjay Dutt, Prachi Desai and Prakash Raj, is a remake of the 2003 super-hit Tamil film "Saamy".

The Hindi version was directed by renowned director K S Ravikumar. The 53-year-old Dutt completed the shooting of the film before he began serving a jail term given to him in connection with the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case.

The film depicting the life of a tough cop was released across India on July 5.
"Man Of Steel", directed by Zack Snyder, is the latest in a series of movies depicting the adventures of the American superhero Superman.
