The Pakistani film industry may yet still be revived, or at least that is what the government is hoping for. The Federal Minister for National Regulation and Services, Firdous Ashiq Awan, said on Tuesday that the government will announce a new policy for promoting the film industry.

The government will also make a new ordinance to protect investors’ interest in the country, she said in the opening ceremony of Censor Awards here. She said that the country is rich in natural talent and dedicated workers.

Awan said that technology has changed film production and how things are done.

She said, “Indian films’ culture is different from our national culture.

We will promote our film industry keeping in view [our culture].”

Former minister for culture Pir Aftab Hussain Gilani concurred with Awan, saying that outdated equipment poses a hurdle in the revival of the film industry.

A large number of artists including Zaiba Bukhtyar and Sungeeta attended the event.

@PaKhtoon: Surely our Pashto industry can beat them at this game any day? Also please share your views on why Pakistan makes up the biggest market for 'nude' Bollywood outside India.
