According to local media reports, Pakistan is not going to screen any Indian movie for now.
As we all are aware about the tension that has been rising between India and Pakistan, in which certain extremist Indians threatened Pakistani artists to leave the country, in response to that, Pakistan has now taken a pretty good decision by banning Indian films.
This threat by the extremist group was followed by one of an Indian journalist, who told Pakistani actors to leave the country.
The importers, on the other hand, have decided to not take rights of small budget movies after the screening of Ranbir Kapoor’s upcoming film ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’.
The artists and filmmakers gathered for a meeting, and while presenting their opinions, they finally decided to launch a protest against the exhibition of Indian films. The meeting held in Pakistan film distribution association chairman Chaudhry Aijaz Kamran’s office in Royal Park.
Senior artists included that millions of revenue has been shifted to India through the movies hence; the government should take notice. They further added that Pakistani artists should not undermine the dignity of their country in the greed of money and fame. The meeting was attended by various renowned artists which includes, Mustafa Qureshi, Abid Ali and Ghulam Mohiuddin.
