Govet May Allow Screening Of Indian Films In Pakistani Cinemas
Pakistani cinema houses will again start screening Indian films nearly four months of ban on movies from across the border over military tension. According to information department a notification in this regard is likely to be issued soon from PM's secretariat. The Indian films "raees" and 'Kaabil' likely to be screened in cinemas this week. The suspension of exhibition of Indian films came after Bollywood producers banned Pakistani actors in Indian films. Financial consideration also motivated the lifting of ban as cinema owners were making losses. The old policy of the screening of the Indian movies in Pakistani cinemas will be maintained. A private Pakistani TV channel has already purchased Indian movies 'Raees' and 'Kaabil' after paying advance money to Indian distributors.
