In a Meeting of the film makers headed by Syed Noor, Chairman Pakistan Film Producers Association, it was deiced that film industry would fight to get equal prime time for Pakistani movies in cinemas, who have restarted airing Bollywood films.
An Action Committee was framed by the Syed Noor that consisted of film makers like Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, Chohdry Muhammad Ejaz Kamran, Dr, Hassan Waqas Rana Wajahat Rauf and Jami Mahmood.
According to Film Producers’ Association committe would look into the matters of Pakistani film industry and also decide the matters with Pakistani Distrbutors Association.
Committe also decided that equal prime time would be taken for the Pakistani films from cinema owners. If new film Balu Mahi that would release on February 10 didn’t get equal prime time then entire film industry would come at roads to protest against the injustice and would also trun to the court.
During the self imposed ban of by Pakistani cinemas on the Indian movies, Pakistani films got a chance to get attention of the audience on big screen but still lack of enough shows caused cinemas to bear los and they decided to call off the ban.
People were looking forward to Mahira Khan’s bollywood debut Raees, which has failed to get green signal from Film Cesnor Board due to controversial content. Kaabil managed to reach the cinema screen in Pakistan along with Fawad Khan’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
In the presence of Indian films, it the competition for upcoming Pakistani films would be tough and they would need to struggle more hard to revive the once glorious film industry to a status that it used to enjoy once.
