Major cinema halls in Pakistan have agreed to lift the ban on Indian films imposed when the relation between India and Pakistan deteriorated due to terrorist attacks and tensions on border.
The cinemas will start screening Indian movies from Monday onwards, Dawn reported.
Pakistani Cinema halls on September 30 had announced an indefinite suspension of screening of Indian movies to protest against the ban of Pakistan artists in India.
“We lifted the suspension as a cinema guild. We took this decision to support them (Indian cinemas) and expect them to support us,” a Pakistani cinema hall owner said.
Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s ‘Freaky Ali’ will be the first movie to be screened in Pakistan after the ban.
Following the attack on an Army base in Uri town of Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistani artists were banned in India.
Film maker Karan Johar and actor Shah Rukh Khan faced serious criticism from Indian right-wing groups on their decision to include Pakistani actors in Bollywood film Industry. The ban on Pak actors is prevailing in India.
