Pakistani cinema owners have reportedly delayed lifting the ban on screening of Bollywood films in the country. Cinema owners were supposed to lift the ban officially this afternoon. However, the decision has been delayed in the light of Quetta Police Training College attack, which claimed at least 61 lives.
“Our basic demand was a lift on the ban on Pakistani actors working in India and the Indian authorities have lifted that ban. Even Fawad Khan’s film is all set to be released in India on time, which is why even we are looking forward to a more positive outcome of this entire scenario,” Zoraiz Lashari, chairman of Pakistani Exhibitors and Distributors Association was quoted as saying in The Express Tribune, a leading Pakistani newspaper.
Cinema owners in Pakistan have earlier decided to stop screening Bollywood films following Indian Motion Pictures Producers’ Association (IMPPA) ban on Pakistani artistes working in India earlier this month.

The decision to lift the ban on Bollywood films comes in the light of Indian Army’s criticism of MNS’s fine of Rs 5 crore on producers who cast Pakistani actors, according to the report.
“Indian Army’s statement is a good enough evidence for the change in perspective on the other side of the border. So is the release of Fawad Khan’s film in India,” another Pakistani cinema owner was quoted in the newspaper.
