Although filmmakers undertake a lot of research and try to present the right facts, in this case, the filmmakers overlooked one thing (and were expecting not to get caught).
The popular Arfa Karim Tower, a technology park in Lahore, has been shown as ISI headquarters located in Islamabad in a recent Bollywood movie (featuring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mithun Chakraborty).
A Pakistani computer scientist and academic Umar Saif tweeted abut the mistake. “Arfa technology park making waves beyond borders. P.S. Bollywood needs better script writers,” read the tweet.

Ever since this glare was pointed out, a lot of Pakistanis have been trolling this Bollywood film.
So Arfa Kareem Software Technology Park got the headquarters of ISI too. Lmao!

Wondering which movie we are talking about? Here’s the trailer:
In the past, there have been several glaring mistakes in Bollywood movies, which, probably the audience may not have realized.
Here are some of them:
In Ra.One, after Shah Rukh Khan dies, he is seen in a coffin (suggests Christian funeral) but later in the movie, you can see wife Kareena Kapoor immersing his ashes into the river.
Also, in the climax scene, the local train starts off from Bandra, goes towards Vile Parle but ends up at CST. Well, you can’t go both ways on the same railway line/track!
In the movie PK, Sushant Singh Rajput tells Anushka that he works in the Pakistan embassy. But the location they have shown is Bruges whereas the Pakistan embassy is in Brussels, and not in Bruges.
Here’s another one from PK…
Aamir Khan’s character learns Bhojpuri language from a sex worker, but in a later scene he is unable to comprehend what a condom is! Its very unlikely that a sex worker will not be aware of a contraceptive such as condom.
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013)
In one of the scenes, Farhan is seen riding Royal Enfield 2012 model. The film was set in the 50s.
In another scene from the same movie, Farhan Akhtar sings the popular Hindi song “nanha munna rahi hoon” from the movie ‘Son of India’ which was released in 1962.
