Showbiz Personalities Angry at Cinema Owners for Giving More Importance to Hollywood Film Than Pakistani

After Pakistani film producers, a number of Pakistani showbiz personalities have also expressed anger over cinema owners giving more importance and screens to foreign Hollywood films than local films on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr and demanded that Pakistani movies be banned. Show more

Two days ago, Pakistani filmmakers had alleged during a press conference that cinema owners had replaced the films released on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr with 'Chakkar, Ghabrana Nahi Hai, Dum Mastam, Remain in the Screen, and Tere Bajra Di Rakhi.' The Hollywood movie 'Doctor Strange: And the Multi-Verse of Madness' started showing on the screens, due to which the earnings of local films were limited.

After the filmmakers, now many showbiz personalities have also expressed anger over the attitude of cinema owners and demanded that they allocate half screens for Pakistani films. Adnan Siddiqui, an actor, and producer of the film 'Dum Mustam' released on Eid, also complained about the under-screening of Pakistani films in cinemas.

In his tweet to Information Minister Maryam Aurangzeb and Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif, he mentioned that the release of 'Doctor Strange' could have been stopped for a few more days, as cinemas were open in the country after two years. Due to this, local films are not being shown.

Actress and writer of Adnan Siddiqui's film 'Dum Mastam' Amar Khan also complained about the attitude of cinema owners in his video and said that audiences in the country want to see Indian movies but under the guise of patriotism. So the ban has been imposed, but Hollywood films are not being stopped for the sake of national cinema.

Rauf Wajahat, the producer of the Eid-themed film 'Parde Mein Rahne Do,' also shared a short video of his film's hero, Ali Rehman, on Instagram, urging cinema owners to show more local films.

He claimed that Pakistani films were earning good money, but local films were being pushed back by releasing them on fewer screens. Actor and singer Farhan Saeed also requested the cinema owners to support the local industry by showing more Pakistani films on the screens instead of foreign movies.

At the same time, he wrote that he made films with great difficulty from Pakistani filmmakers because of Corona, and they needed help. Actress Zhalay Sarhadi also expressed frustration over the importance given to Hollywood films by local cinema owners over local films and voiced solidarity with Pakistani film producers.
