Three Pakistani films to be featured in Jaipur Film Festival

WEB DESK: Amid the Uri attack and whole banning the movies and dramas fiasco, one of the Pakistani classics, Jago Hua Savera received a major blow, as it was stopped from screening Jio MAMI 18th Mumbai Film Festival, over the protests and complaints received by the administration of the awards.

However, things may seem, a bit settled as at another awards show, Jaipur Film Festival is all set to showcase and screen three Pakistani movies.

The selected films this time around include Mah-e-Mir, which was based on Urdu poet Mir Taqi Mir’s life starring Fahad Mustafa and Iman Ali, Hellhole, a documentary on conservancy workers in Pakistan by Mobeen Ansari, and Little Red Roses, Asim Abbasi’s short film about a young girl who disguises herself as a boy to sell roses on the streets of Karachi.

It is definitely the case that Pakistani movies are not behind at all when it comes to competing with other foreign films as previously, Mah e Mir was also nominated for the Milan film festival.
