A new trend started in the Pakistani cinema industry. After 'Sang-e-Mah,' the last episode of the popular drama 'PariZaad' has also been announced to be shown in cinemas.
For the last two years, there has been a trend of showing dramas in cinemas in Pakistan, and in the previous two years, dramas like 'Mere Paas tum Ho, Ehd-e-Wafa and Sang-e-Mah' have been shown in cinemas.
"Sang-e-Mah" was released three days ago on January 7 and 8, and its first installment was aired on the big screen.
Previously, at the start of 2020, the last episodes of the most popular dramas 'Mere Paas Tum Ho' and 'Ehd-e-Wafa' were played in theatres, and now, at the start of 2022, the final episode of the popular drama 'PariZaad' will be presented on the big screen.
While sharing the poster of 'Parizaad' on social media platforms, Hum TV confirmed that the last episode of the most popular drama of 2021 would be released on the big screen on January 22.
According to private TV, the last episode will be aired in cinemas before TV.

On January 22, "Parizaad" will be released in theatres around the country, and the last episode of the drama will likely be exhibited for a few days on the big screen.
While dramas have a long history in Pakistani theatres, relatively few Pakistani films have been made on the big screen in the recent two years.
Following the lockdown of cinemas in March 2020 due to Corona, the first Pakistani film, 'Khel Khel Mein,' was released on the big screen 18 months later, in November 2021, and was a mediocre grosser.
Although Pakistani cinemas have been open for four months, no other big-budget Pakistani film has been released, and its release has been postponed by the announcement of a few film screenings.
The fifth wave of Corona has arrived in Pakistan, and everyday Corona instances have been steadily growing for the past ten days, prompting fears that theatres would be forced to close again. However, the government has not mentioned a cinema lockdown or closure thus yet.
