Bollywood stars and makers heavily promotes film in India, UAE, UK, USA and even goes to these countries for promoting and attracting people.
But in Pakistan these actors/makers never came but still manage to earn huge profits. Bollywood industry now also knows that Pakistan is a big market and they can earn lot from here.
