    Who is affected by Indian films not being shown in Pakistan? Dangal Producers refused to release the film in Pakistan and many people in Pakistan got upset with that decision. Many cinema houses lost lot of income. Also film goers are not happy. So tell me who is dependent on whom here? If all Indian producers take the same stand then Pakistani film industry is dead.Recommend
