We Should Not Ban Indian Films – Humayun Saeed
Renowned Pakistani Actor and Producer Humayun Saeed disagreed to the suggestion of banning Bollywood films in Pakistan. He said how can we ban Indian films if we believe that blocking of Pakistani Films & artists by India was wrong.
Giving credit of Pakistan’s revival to Indian Films he said that cinemas in Pakistan revived because of Bollywood, it was then that Pakistani Producers started to work on Film Industry again. He said that cinemas need at least one new film each year while we produce only few movies the whole year, without Bollywood cinemas cannot survive.
He said that banning Indian movies during Eid and other festivals will promote local industry but complete ban will have negative impact on the cinema industry.
He further added that we all grew up watching Indian movies, if these films are screened on cinemas then it will be better for Pakistan.
Pakistani cinema stopped screening Indian films from last week, Pakistan Cable Operators also stopped airing Indian content.
On the other hand India Producers association banned Pakistani artists and technicians. Different political parties of India are asking Indian government to completely ban Pakistani artists.
