Lahore: A Pakistani court today imposed restrictions on the screening of Indian films across the country and laid down certain conditions for their release.






Justice Khalid Mahmood of the Lahore High Court issued the interim order in response to a petition filed by controversial TV talk show host Mubshir Lucman, a former film producer known for his anti-India stance.

Lucman claimed that under Pakistani rules, Indian movies that are shot completely in India and are sponsored by an Indian cannot be screened in the country.

He alleged “fake papers” were being used to change the identity of sponsors to screen Indian films in Pakistan. He also produced a court order to back up his arguments.

The court directed authorities not to allow the screening of films that are imported using “fake” documents and are not sponsored by a Pakistani or foreign national.

The judge also directed the Film Censor Board and Board of Revenue to respond to the petition at the next hearing on November 25.
