The summary for screening of all international films will be submitted to the Federal Cabinet after amendment.

According to details, Federal Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry has said that he had proposed to revive the cinema industry by installing non-Indian Punjabi films in Pakistani cinemas.

He further said that the Cabinet has said that you should not limit it to Punjabi films only.

Fawad Chaudhry said, all international films except India should be allowed to be imported in Pakistan, so now we will resubmit the summary after amendment.

"In the 70's we had 780 cinemas but now there are only 78 cinemas," he said.

If we do not take immediate steps to restore cinema and film, our film industry, which is already almost stagnant, will come to a complete halt, the Federal Information Minister added.

Fawad Chaudhry said the government is bringing a film package for this and have also taken practical steps to revive the cinema and it will be announced by next week.
