Salman Khan in Tubelight

New Delhi: 

Highlights

  1. Tubelight is not banned in Pakistan, says a film distributor
  2. Tubelight may not release in Pakistan on Eid
  3. Salman Khan's film releases in India on June 23
Salman Khan's Tubelight is all set for release in India but the makers are not sure if the film will release in Pakistan on Eid. Tubelight, which has been co-produced by Salman Khan Films, is set against the backdrop of the India-China war of 1962. "Salman has a huge following in Pakistan, which has only grown with the positive messaging of Bajrangi Bhaijaan . We hope to release Tubelight in Pakistan as well, and our efforts continue in that direction, but we respect the law of the land and judiciary if they decide otherwise," said Amar Butala, COO of Salman Khan Films, reports news agency IANS.

Satish Anand, who is one of the major distributors of Indian films in Pakistan, told IANS, "Until yesterday, the distributor in our territory had not been finalised. We already have two major Pakistani films, as well as Pirates of Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Transformers: The Last Knight and The Mummy announced. There are limited screens and most of them committed for Eid programming."

However, Mr Anand denied that Salman Khan's film has been banned in Pakistan. "It's totally untrue that Tubelight is banned in Pakistan. In fact, it remains a much awaited film," IANS quoted him as saying. He added that the film will release in Pakistan if their Censor Board 'clear it.' Meanwhile, Pakistan's Central Board of Film Censors chief Mobasher Hasan told IANS: "It's the distributor's choice to import any foreign film."
