After the ban on Indian movies has been lifted, Pakistani filmmakers have become more active to make sure that locals film are not effected by Bollywood.
Syed Noor, Chairman of Pakistan Film Producers Association organized a meeting for the filmmakers and it was decided that film industry would fight to get equal prime time for Pakistani films in cinemas, who have restarted screening Bollywood films.
According to Film Producers Association, the committee would look into the matters of Pakistani film industry and also decide the matters with Pakistani distributors Association so that no local films face prejudice.
Committee also decided that equal prime time would be taken for the Pakistani films from cinema owners. If new film Balu Mahi that is set to release on February 10, didn’t get equal prime time then entire film industry would reach the court or protest on the roads against the partiality.
Indian films are already screened in Pakistan and the competition for upcoming Pakistani films would be tough and will have to struggle more to collect good collections. Earlier, during the self imposed ban Pakistani films got a chance to get attention of the audience on big screen but cinemas still struggled to survive due to lack of audience attracted to Pakistani films.
