  • Indian films Taj Mehal and Bride & Prejudice (which was released as "Balley Balley") could not impress Pakistani cinegores and they were totally flopped. But the classic film Mughal-e-Azam has an average business in Pakistan's major Urdu speaking city - Karachi. This film was flopped in the rest of the country. Distributors lost a huge amount and therefore the release of other planned Indian films were postponed.
  • Pop singer Jawad Ahmad married this year.
