New Zealand: Movie based on 26/11 Mumbai terror attack pulled off from theatres in the wake of Christchurch Mosque shootings

Hotel Mumbai tells the story of victims and survivors of the terror attack at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai.

Hotel Mumbai, a movie based on the 26/11 Terror Attacks in Mumbai by Pakistani terrorists, has been pulled off from theatres in New Zealand in the aftermath of the Christchurch Mosque shootings by a White supremacist.

In a press release, Icon Film Distribution announced the suspension of the film from all New Zealand cinemas, NZ Herald reported. “After consultation with local exhibition partners, the decision was made to suspend the film out of respect for a country in mourning,” it said.

Oscar Nominated actor Dev Patel features in what has been described as an intense documentary-style thriller which depicts the terror attack in Mumbai in “harrowing” and “haunting” detail. The movie came in at number 2 at the New Zealand weekend Box Office behind Captain Marvel. It has received glowing reviews worldwide for its realistic portrayal of events.

The movie is based on the 2009 documentary Surviving Mumbai about the Mumbai attacks in 2008. The English language movie tells the story of victims and survivors of the terror attack at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai. It shows how the hotel staff risk their lives to keep everyone safe as people make unthinkable sacrifices to protect themselves and their families.

At least 49 people were murdered in the Christchurch Mosque Shootings which occurred on the 15th of March. The terrorist live-streamed his actions on the internet as well. The terrorist, a suspected white supremacist, was charged with murder on Saturday. He will again be produced in court on April 5 where the police said he is likely to face more charges.
