If you are a fan of Salman Khan, then you know exactly what you would have missed had the Pakistan Government carried on with its ‘No Indian movies for 2 weeks’ policy’ for Eid holidays. However, sense prevailed on the last day of PML N Government as they reduced the ban to one week, to promote the Pakistan Film Industry.
How will releasing an Indian film one week after Eid help the local cinema? Race 3 will bring audience to the theatres because it has Salman Khan in it and when they will not get the ticket, they will opt for a Pakistani film rather than go back home without watching a film. Got it?
Whatever the reason behind the revised decision, it is a step in the right direction especially at a time when people have a lot of options other than visiting the cinema. In the name of ‘safeguarding the interest of Pakistani movies’, the Government has played it smart and one hopes that the release of Race 3 on June 22 and Sanju on June 29 will help the cinema industry in general and the Pakistani films in cinema in particular.
Have a look at the notice:
According to the notice, Salman Khan’s Race 3 will be screened one week after Eid be it June 21st or June 22nd alongside the other Eid films especially those who manage to sustain the first week.
The movies which are going to be released on Eid Ul Fitr are 7 Din Mohabbat In, Wajood, Azaadi and Na band Nna Baraati; Hollywood’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and Oceans’s 8 will share the screens on the long weekend while Incredibles 2 might have a delayed release, as per the advance booking situation.
