By Atiya Riffat

The 1976 film will open in Saudi on June 14 as a component of its area wide release – this will be the first term the film will have been seen in GCC silver screens. It was prohibited from screens on its underlying release.

The film blockbuster that shows the life of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) and the tale of how Islam started, in the wake of encountering boundless renovations will be shown in 4k at Vox Cinemas Riyadh Park this Eid-ul-Fitr.

At a screening on Thursday, the Oscar-named directorial by Moustapha Akkad was cleared by the General Commission for Audiovisual Media (GCAM).

The film had previously blended up a tempest during its underlying duration of release in 1976, which brought about it getting banished from release in greater part of the Arab countries.

The film will be given a broad discharge all over the Arab world, except for Kuwait which presently can’t seem to lift the boycott off of it.

Distributor Front Row Films has affirmed that the way to receive freedom was generally clear. The film, which was shot in both English and Arabic with completely extraordinary casts, is currently set to go on revolution on Saudi’s five existing silver screen.
