Bollywood films should not be banned in our country: Khalid Ahmed513 views
All Indian films should be released in Pakistan since I don’t believe in bans, said Pakistani filmmaker Khalid Ahmed.
“I don’t believe in bans at all. I feel all films including Indian ones should be released in Pakistan. As an artist, I don’t support bans,” he said.
Interestingly Khalid Ahmed is also the uncle of Bollywood director Imtiaz Ali. Imtiaz is renowned for his movies Rockstar,Highway and Tamasha. Khaled also said that cultural exchanges between both countries would help improve the process of people-to-people contact and help promote peace.
“I feel such initiatives to will have a far effect in bringing peace between both countries,” he said.
Last year when Saif Ali Khan’s movie Phantom was released, Pakistan banned the movie since it depicted the Islamic Republic as a nation that harbours terrorism. Saif and Phantom director Kabir Khan created quite a stir over the ban.
