ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Film Producers Association (PFPA) has demanded a ban on the release of all Indian films in the country.
Senior representative PFPA, Chaudhry Ejaz Kamran, told An English daily that “If Indian stakeholders and organizations can take a stand and do everything for the welfare of their industry, then why can’t we? They have banned our artists and films in the past so what’s stopping us?”
PFPA proceeded in writing a letter to the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, requesting him to take the necessary steps and make a decision on the matter.
The association believes that, for the sake of our local film industry, the government should impose the said ban. If this is not carried out, local cinema owners will continue to prioritize Bollywood films over local ones.
“We have struggled for the welfare of our local film industry and this is why we decided to contact Imran Khan. We are hopeful that he will listen to us and impose the ban,” stated Kamran.
