Pakistani Film ”Jago Hua Savera” Dropped From Mumbai Film Festival: Here’s Why

Pakistani film Jago Hua Savera will not be screened at the Mumbai film festival anymore. The screening of the movie, which was slated to be shown in the restored classics section, attracted much criticism owing to the prevailing hostile sentiments towards Pakistan after the Uri attacks. Trouble for the movie started when a NGO named Sangharsh Foundation wrote to the Mumbai Police seeking permission to protest against the screening of the film.
