Flim critic, Omair Alavi said, people need to remember that Bollywood Films and Dramas are shown openly in Pakistan in cinemas and on television channels as art, film or music has no boundaries.
He questioned, "Don't Pakistanis go to watch Indian films? Are not Indian dramas a regular on our channels."
