Mumbai: Filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia says his upcoming Milan Talkies will not release in Pakistan as he believes Indian films should never be screened in the neighbouring country since it is one of the hubs of piracy.

In the aftermath of Pulwama terror attack, which claimed the lives of at least 40 CRPF personnel, the makers of several upcoming projects including Total Dhamaal, Luka Chuppi, Arjun Patiala, had announced that they will not be releasing the films in Pakistan.

When asked if he plans to release the film in Pakistan, Tigmanshu told reporters, “No, it will not release in Pakistan. For two reasons. First, we stand in solidarity. Second, piracy originates from Pakistan. So, we should never release our films there, irrespective of any reasons.”

Dhulia was speaking at the trailer launch of the film here on Wednesday. The movie stars Ali Fazal, Shraddha Srinath, Sikander Kher and Ashutosh Rana, among others.

When asked for his take on the ban on Pakistani artiste, the filmmaker said it should stay as of now.

“Right now, there should be a ban considering the situation. When the situation gets better, we will open our arms.”

Ali said right now everyone has become an expert on how to solve the crisis but one must trust the Army.

“During demonetisation, we all had become an economist. I think we should trust the army. They are doing their job. We have a great army and we should stand in solidarity.”
Written by Tigmanshu and Kamal Pandey, Milan Talkies is scheduled to release on 15 March.

Bollywood moved by Pulwama terror attack

On Sunday, as reported by Sirf News, the shooting of megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s next project and a commercial, featuring cricketers Virendra Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh and Suresh Raina, had been stopped for two hours due to a protest against the Pulwama terror attack.

In the wake of a terror attack on a CRPF convoy in Kashmir that claimed the lives of at least 40 soldiers, 24 film associations, including Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) and Indian Film & Television Directors’ Association (IFTDA), staged a protest at Filmcity in Goregaon.
