Vastavam web: Due to distributors of salman khan film “Tubelight” were hesitant to release in pakistan at a high cost.Pakistan Film Exhibitors Association Chairman Zohraiz Lashari told they are asking for a big price to import ‘Tubelight’ in pakistan. Some distributors do fear that the censor board might have a problem with the film which is set against the backdrop of 1962 India-China war. Sohail Khan, a distributor-producer, told that the producers here do not want Salman Khan’s film to release on Eid as it will affect the business of six Pakistani movies lined up for release during the festival week.
Mubashir Hasan, the chairman of the Central Censor Board of Pakistan, said he is yet to receive an application from the distributors for “Tubelight”.”Since there is no ban on Indian movies in Pakistan, we are considering every application regarding the release of Indian films for screening in local cinemas,” he said.We are now going to screen it in Pakistani cinemas on July 21,” Khan said, adding Pakistani films can’t compete with Salman’s film since he has a huge following in the country.”Salman Khan Films is committed to taking ‘Tubelight’ to markets across the globe with our overseas distributors Yash Raj Films. Salman has a huge following in Pakistan, which has only grown with the positive messaging on ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’.
