The Association of Film Exhibitors has decided not to release Indian films in the country, while the government has the television broadcasting of Indian advertisements, Fawad Chaudhry said on Tuesday in a tweet.
The decisions were taken in the context of Indian jets violating Pakistani airspace.
In his tweet, the minister said that the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory had been issued directives to take action against the airing of news and entertainment advertisement made in India.
The tweet by the minister said, ‘Cinema Exhibitors Association has boycotted Indian content, no Indian Movie will be released in Pakistan. Also have instructed PEMRA to act against Made in India Advertisements.”
In the midst of increasing tensions between the two countries following a terrorist attack in Pulawana on 14 February, which killed 45 Indian soldiers in occupied Kashmir, Pakistani artists were discourage from performing in Bollywood films.
