Karachi’s Nueplex Cinemas announced that they have stopped screening Indian Films. The management posted it on the face book as well.
“To express solidarity with the Armed Forces of Pakistan, the Management of Nueplex Cinemas has decided to stop the screening of Indian films with immediate effect. We will keep our patrons informed of further developments in this matter.”
Presently the cinema is showing Pakistani films Maalik, Jaanan, Actor In Law and Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai and Hollywood releases, Sully, Storks and The Magnificent Seven.
The screening of Bollywood film, the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Pink, has been stopped.
Soon the Atrium cinemas will also make public announcement as the website of the cinema also shows that management has decided not to screen Indian films.
This move followed earlier pressure on Pakistani artists to ‘leave’ India in 48 hours.
