Report: Pakistan close to lifting Bollywood ban

Pakistan may be ending its ban on movies from India after four months, the Press Trust of India reported Jan. 25.

Sources from Pakistan's information ministry said that a committee led by Maryam Aurangzeb, the minister of state for information, and Irfan Siddiqui, an adviser to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, has recommended the government lift the ban.

Sharif recently established the committee after appeals by local cinema owners.

Pakistan's ban on Bollywood films started in response to a Sept. 29, 2016, decision by the Indian Motion Picture Producers Association to bar Pakistani artists and technicians from working in India amid political tensions between the two countries. The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority also prohibited the broadcast of all Indian TV channels.
