Salman's 'Tubelight' might not release on Eid in Pakistan


Bollywood superstar Salman Khans highly anticipated film "Tubelight" might not release in Pakistan around the Eid as a few local filmmakers and organisations have demanded the release of the film in the country be put on hold. The Pakistan Film Distributors Association and the Pakistan Film Producers Association, along with various local film-makers, are actively trying to stall the release of "Tubelight", citing better business for the Pakistani films scheduled to release at the same time, reports According to the protesters, as decided by the Federal Ministry of Information in 2010, the release of any Indian film on a Muslim holiday in Pakistan is forbidden. The filmmakers are even ready to take the matter to court, if required. "Yalghaar" and "Shor Sharaba" are two Pakistani films that have currently been slated for a release on the Eid 2017.
