Earlier this month, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting issued a notice to ban the screening of Indian films in Pakistan.
The decision was taken after the atrocities of the Modi government in Kashmir which was also supported by the people around the country.
Soon after the decision, every Pakistani star encouraged the decision by the ministry but a number of Bollywood celebrities raised their voice against the ban.
Recently, the Indian diva Sonam Kapoor also talked against the ban on Bollywood and said that the situation is heart-breaking.

I have a huge Pakistani following and two of my best friends are Muslim and half Pakistani
