Indian movies again on Pakistani cinemas
Indian films Taj Mehal and Bride & Prejudice (which was released as "Balley Balley") could not impress Pakistani cinegores and they were totally flopped. This famous Indian film could only attract 200 film fans in Plaza cinema Lahore where the capacity was more than 800 seats. But the classic film Mughal-e-Azam has an average business in Pakistan's major Urdu speaking city - Karachi, and was flopped in the rest of the country. Distributors lost a huge amount and therefore the release of other planned Indian films were postponed. This classic Indian film failed to attract a large number of cinegoers on the first day of its release at the Gulistan cinema Lahore on Sunday April 23. Only 400 people watched the maiden show.

This classic Indian film is released in Pakistan after 26 years. The last released Indian movies were Noor Jehan and Kashish in 1980 after a special permission from dictator Zia. There had been a ban on the release of Indian films since 1965.
