"We have a clear set of laws and rules as legislated by the parliament. We have to comply with the law. (It's as) Simple as that," Fakhr-e-Alam, Central Board of Film Censors (CBFC) chairman said.

"Our job is not to get involved in controversies or respond to everyone and everything. We will follow the law and take decisions according to law," he added.

'Phantom' is a political thriller inspired by 'Dongri To Dubai' writer Hussain Zaidi's 'Mumbai Avengers', which is based on the aftermath of the 26/11 terror attacks in which 10 Pakistani terrorists sneaked into Mumbai from the sea in November 2008 and killed 166 Indians and foreigners.

The movie, starring Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif, is directed by Kabir Khan - the filmmaker whose past project 'Kabul Express' elicited protests from some quarters in Pakistan and whose 'Ek Tha Tiger' was banned in Pakistan following allegations that it portrays the neighbouring country's intelligence agency in a bad light.

However, Kabir Khan's 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', a Salman Khan-starrer that propagates a positive message of peace, unity and brotherhood, went houseful in Pakistan despite initial hiccups in its release.
