Pakistan softens restrictions on Bollywood flicks
LAHORE: The Pakistani government has allowed the screening of Bollywood movie ‘Welcome’ in the country, softening its stance on the long-standing ban on exhibition of Indian films in the country, the Hindustan Times reported on Friday. “The government has (previously) allowed Indian films which are not shot in India and made by producers not based there. But now … [this] is a very good news for us,” the paper quoted Nadeem Mandviwalla, a well-known distributor and exhibitor, as telling PTI.
The development came days after a Senate committee recommended the Pakistani government to allow Indian films’ screening under a censorship policy, the report said.
