Pakistani cinema owners had lifted the ban on Indian films a while back but new film’s couldn’t release in Pakistan due to NOC issues. Pm Nawaz Sharif had recently formed a committee to clear at least 2-3 Indian films a month and latest reports suggest that Hritik Roshan’s Kaabil will hit Pakistani cinemas tomorrow(January 27) and if there’s any kind of delay it might be pushed to this Saturday but will certainly release over the weekend.
Mahira Khan’s Raees and Hritik Roshan’s Kaabil, released internationally on January 25. Bollywood films will now finally start screening in Pakistan but the future of Raees is still uncertain. There is no confirmation regarding the release date but the news doing rounds is that it might release on February 3rd, 2017.

Well, this is a sort of disappoint for Mahira’s fans since the release of the film is delayed due to some unannounced reasons but the hopes are still set high to see the diva on our local screens. Mahira doesn’t has a lot of screen presence in the film but has a meaty role which she manages to pull off pretty nicely.
