‘Cut Bollywood films import’ say Pakistani Producers

The Pakistan Film Producer’s Association has threatened to take out rallies and hunger strikes if the federal government does not make a 90 percent cut in the number of bollywood movies being screened so as to boost the domestic film industry.

The Association’s chairman, actor and producer Syed Noor, warned the government of consequences if the group’s demand is not met.

“We will take out rallies and organise hunger strike camps if the government does not take any action to save the local industry,” he said.

Ch Ijaz Kamran along with Syed Noor stated that through a planned conspiracy, TV dramas of the country were being destroyed by allowing foreign dramas to be seen in the country. “A majority of the people will become unemployed due to such permission”, they said.

The Pakistan Government had banned the screening of Indian films for over four decades after the 1965 war. Pakistan’s film distribution and exhibition sector was in tatters before the government allowed the screening of Indian films again.

There are generally few takers for the films made by Lollywood, the movie industry based in Lahore while multiplexes that screen latest Indian movies attract huge crowds.

Lollywood films, which are usually in Punjabi, have been criticised for their poor scripts and not so professional production values.
