Nawaz Sharif Nods Head For Indian Films In Pakistan

CRB Tech reviews over here shares Nawaz Sharif’s approval for Indian films in Pakistan.

The nation’s information ministry has launched a gazette notice revealing the government is “pleased to keep the current plan to show off all worldwide films (including Native indian films).”


Pakistani press reported that the nation’s pm, Nawaz Sharif, on Tuesday gave the official go-ahead to screening Indian films in the nation even as the govt preserves that there was never a formal ban on Indian films releasing in the country.

According to a report launched in the media, Pakistan’s Ministry of Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage, has launched a gazette notice dated Jan 31, 2017, nevertheless “the Federal Government (of Pakistan) is very happy to keep the current plan to show off all worldwide films (including Native indian films) in Pakistani cinema and is very happy to take decisions for resurgence of the Pakistani film industry”.

The review further says that once the ‘new transfer order of Pakistan’s Secretary of state for Commerce for foreign movies’ is adopted, the changes will be implemented and if the requirements are completed in time, Kaabil can be released on Feb 3 and Raees on Feb 10 in Pakistan.

After the Uri attack in Sept 2016, Indian Motion Picture Producers Association (IMPAA) had prohibited Pakistani artists and many Pakistani stars such as Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan had to return to their countries. The Indian surgical strike in Sept had further heightened the stress.

In revenge to the IMPAA’s move, Pakistani cinema entrepreneurs had suspended testing of Native indian films. Also, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) had put a cover ban on Indian content on Oct 21.

Later, reports emerged that the Pakistan’s government had prohibited Indian films, music and television programmes in the nation, but Pakistan never launched a formal announcement about it.

In fact, just two days ago, Pakistan’s MoS for Information, Marriyum Aurangzeb, launched an explanation that the Pakistani government never prohibited Indian films in the nation and it was a self-imposed ban from the theatre entrepreneurs.

She was quoted by the Pakistani media as saying ‘that Pakistan had decided to maintain the present plan regarding transfer of Indian cinematograph films so that Pakistani cinema trade can derive benefit from exhibition of Indian films’.

The ban on Indian films had badly hurt the company interests of Pakistani cinema entrepreneurs. According to reports, 60-75% box office earnings in Pakistan come from presenting Indian films and cinema entrepreneurs were bleeding with losses running in millions per day and they were desperate to come out of this so-called self-imposed business exile.
