Super-star Salman Khan’s Tubelight might not release on ‘Eid’ in Pakistan as few local film makers & organizations have request to put the release on hold.
The Pakistani Films Distributors Association & Films Producers Association desire better business for their own film during ‘Eid’ holidays. “If Tubelight also releases on Eid it will surely hit the industry of these Pakistani films & that will not help our industry” PTI quoted Pakistani artiste Mustafa Qureshi as saying.
In 2010 a law was approved by Pakistani Federal Ministry of Information which forbids the release of Indian cinema on any Muslim festival. Sohail Khan the producer of Shor Sharaba said “My movie is supposed to release on Eid ul Fitr & if the government does not stall Tubelight I will not release it as a mark of complaint.”
The association is also prepare to send an official letter to “Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif” to stop Salman Khan’s Tubelight release on “Eid” in Pakistan. All the members of Pakistani films industry have attached hands to protest the release of Tubelight on Eid.
“It has been resolute that all those related to the Pakistani films industry will support the Pakistani movies that are supposed to release on Eid ul Fitr” Husain added.
The chairman of the Pakistan Films Distributors Association Chaudhry Ejaz Kamran has also support the stir. “It is not fair asking our movies to compete with big Bollywood projects on Eid & it is cruel to our industry” he said.
