This Indian filmmaker doesn’t want to release his films in Pakistan (and it’s not because of Pulwama)

Filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia doesn’t want to release his films in Pakistan, but its not because of the Pulwama terrorist attack.

The filmmaker feels Indian films should be banned in Pakistan because piracy is a big problem and Pakistan is the hub for it. Tigmanshu says his upcoming film ‘Milan Talkies’ will not release in Pakistan. “Piracy is the strongest reason why I do not want to release my films in Pakistan,” says Filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia.

“Art, indeed has no geography and can go far beyond borders. But, the thing is that piracy is hammering Indian film industry which should not be the case. They also have actors, directors and they are doing their business in their film industry and so we are doing it here and pretty well. As of now things should be as they are for films.”

“Filmmaking is just not a hobby or a passion for all of us, but it is a medium through which we earn bread for our family too. This should not get affected,” said Tigmanshu.

Tigamanshu feels even Hollywood movies sometimes affect the business of Hindi cinema in India. “It happens a lot many times, when Hollywood movies are released in India and are dubbed in many Indian languages which greatly affect the business of Indian cinema and it’s sad.”
