Pakistan cinemas ban Indian films

Major cinemas in Pakistan have banned Indian films in what they call an act of solidarity with their country’s armed forces.

The film boycotts have been announced in Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad. The move follows a rise in military tensions between the two countries over the divided territory of Kashmir.

On Thursday a group of Indian film-makers, the Indian Motion Picture Producers Association, banned Pakistani actors from working in Bollywood.

At least one right-wing nationalist politician has ordered Pakistani actors to get out of India.
