This #Bollywood movie shows Arfa Software Technology Park in #Lahore as #ISI #Headquarters #Islamabad! They probably just googled ‘famous buildings in Pakistan’ – wrote a user.

Here are some of the other comments from the social media community:

 

Though the movie is fictional, the team definitely still needed some qualified background check and better research to not be a laughing stock. If you are wondering what ISI headquarters was doing in the movie in the first place, the movie revolves around Vasudev Shastri (played by Utkarsh Sharma) who is a topper and comes to IIT. Due to his extraordinary expertise in the field, he is referred to as ‘genius’ around the campus. However, GENIUS also works part-time with Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and puts his unreal hacking techniques to use.
