Tubelight to release in Pakistan
Even though Indian films were banned last year, the government in Pakistan has decided to lift the ban this year
Salman Khan's Eid release Tubelight, is likely to release in Pakistan. The makers of the film have issued an official statement regarding this.
Amar Bhutala, COO of Salman Khan Films and co-producer says, "Salman Khan Films is committed to taking Tubelight to markets across the globe with our overseas distributors Yashraj Films. Salman has a huge fan following in Pakistan, which has only grown with the positive message in Bajrangi Bhaijaan. We hope to release Tubelight there as well, and our efforts continue in that direction; but we respect the law of the land and judiciary if they decide otherwise."
Last year the screening of Indian films were banned in Pakistan after Pakistani artistes were banned in India. However, earlier this year the government there decided to lift the ban. In the past, Salman's Ek Tha Tiger could not be screened in Pakistan as Katrina Kaif was shown playing an ISI agent.
Kabir Khan’s Tubelight is set against the backdrop of the Sino-Indian war. It stars Sohail Khan, Zhu Zhu and is co-produced by Salman Khan and others.
