A lobby of film industry bigwigs in Pakistan gears up to ban Indian films there
BOMBAY TIMES (September 28, 2011)
Several bigwigs in the Pakistani film industry have decided to take legal action to stop Indian films from being shown in the country. Actors Moammar Rana, Shaan, Sangeeta and Shahid, directors Syed Noor, Aslam Dar, Altaf Hussain, Masood Butt and Pervaiz Rana, and producers Jani Malik and Chaudhry Kamran, were among those who pledged to take action, claiming they were perturbed by the public’s interest in Indian films and that Pakistani films hardly drew crowds. While they said a petition was being filed against exhibiting Indian films, the view was also expressed that Pakistani films released on Eid-ul-Fitr could have done better business had it not been for Indian films.
