Iranian Movies to Go on Screen in Pakistani Theaters
TEHRAN (FNA)- A growing number of Iranian movies will soon hit Pakistani cinema screens as the country's film industry, centered in the city of Lahore (Lollywood), plans to import Iranian movies.
A report by Daily Express said that Pakistani cinemas currently screening Hollywood and Bollywood movies are now set to have a flavor of Iranian films.
Lollywood is planning to import films from Iran, originally in Persian. The movies will be first dubbed in Urdu before their screenings in theaters.
Currently details are being finalized by the local industry's bigwigs. However, unlike the screenings of Indian films, which are criticized by Lollywood artists, the possible arrival of Iranian films in Pakistani cinemas is being appreciated in the film industry.
Lollywood's warm welcome also comes because of the joint venture behind such screenings. Filmmakers are looking forward to Pakistan-Iran joint ventures through Iranian support in the form of advanced technology and better storylines, the daily said.
According to a Lollywood insider, the Iranian film industry is ready to support Lollywood, which could help revive the declining film industry.
