Twitter alert: Loadshedding films

The Silence of the Fans, Pati, Patni aur UPS, Wehshi Paseena, The Good, the Bad and the Wapda?

Web Desk June 17, 2012

Who said there is no hope for Pakistan’s film industry?

Engulfed by various problems, with the power crisis being among the biggest issues, Pakistanis still manage to laugh through times of tragedy.

As temperature rises in the country, so do the frequency of power outages and the number of street protests against it across the country. However, some victims of the loadshedding decide to use their energies differently.

Local Twitter users tweeted about possible film names for loadshedding in Pakistan. The Twitter hashtag #LoadsheddingFilms trended in Pakistan, where users changed famous movie names to create one of their own.
