Aamir Khan’s Dangal might release in Pakistan

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Pakistani film exhibitors and cinema owners put the ban on Indian films after the escalating tensions between the two countries following the Uri terror attack. However they are likely to lift the self-imposed bans and Indian films will be screened from December 19.

Zoraish Lashari, Chairman of the Film Exhibitors Association told the reports, “The cinema owners and other stakeholders in the industry have been hit by the decision to impose a temporary suspension on the screening of Indian films. A lot of investment has been made in upgrading or building new cineplexes and multiplexes and the business at this time is dependent on screening of latest Indian films,” he said.

Lashari said the cinema owners and exhibitors had only taken a self-imposed suspension of screening of Indian films and that it was not a ban.

“A private media group is presently trying to import and release Dangal in Pakistan,” a source said. Lashari said that first unreleased Indian films would be screened after which they would have negotiations with Indian distributors to continue the import of movies into Pakistan.

Freaky Ali was the last Indian film which got an NOC from the Pakistani government and it will be re-screened in some theaters on Monday to check the public sentiments. If all goes well then they will apply for NOC for Aamir Khan’s Dangal on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Pakistan is the third biggest market for Indian films. Earlier Ae Dil Hai Mushkil missed a large chunk of business there. Now Dangal and Raees have a huge demand in the country. Both Indian and Pakistani distributors/exhibitors are trying to release Dangal in Pakistan.

  1. Will benefit a lot to Dangal and Raees specially due to presence of Mahira Khan. May things get normalize Slowly and steadily btwn both countries.

    BOYCOTT THIS WORST DANGAL & RAEES

  3. Agar Dangal pakistan mein release hui to samjo ek bhi record bachne wala nahi 1000cr to pakka hein..
    Dangal-1000cr

    • Sapne dekhna band kar. 1000 cr koi halwa nahi hai. Pakistan me Bollywood film max 30-40 cr karti hai. So according to you rest of the world me woh 960 cr karegi. Tu pagla gaya hai bhai. Doctor ke pass jaa.

      • Bhai ka fan Pk worldwide 792cr in 2014.. Bhul gaya kya?
        Just 100cr or 200cr needed.. It will do after china…dont worry bro
        Dangals record na to sallu tod payega na srk puri apne career mein…wait n watch…
        55M..overseas to banega…

        • PK was Raju Papa’s film. Bhul gaya kya? It won’t cross 700 cr worldwide including China and without China it will be less than BB.

  4. Tu bol raha hein na Aamir ka papa raju hein to sallu ka pappa kabir hein…
    Nahi to sallu wahi remake filme banata
    Remake king…chori karke ullu banata hein uske fans ko…
    Hahaha

    • Remake films only help directors. It becomes easier for director to make film.
      It doesn’t help collections of films in any way. People don’t go to watch a film cause it is remake of a south film. Many people don’t even know that it is a remake.
      But people go to watch film if it is directed by some one like Raju Hirani or belongs to franchise like Dhoom.

  5. And for your info. Salman has made Kabir while Raju Papa has made Amir. Kabir doesn’t have a hit without Salman but Raju Papa has 1 hit and 1 blockbuster without Amir and that too with Sanjay Dutt.
    The man who can give blockbuster with Sanjay Dutt whose every film in last 2 decades is a disaster or flop then it is not surprising if he gives 2 ATHGs with Amir khan. The one and only ATHG(Not including RH)whose credit can be given to Amir is Gajhani. Other 3 as you know, 2 by Papa and 1 Dhoom 3.
