Pulwama attack: Makers to not release Luka Chuppi and Arjun Patiala in Pakistan

The Pulwama terror attack shook the entire nation when it occurred on Thursday. Claiming the lives of 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans, the deadly attack perpetrated by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed has deeply saddened and infuriated many in the country, including the Bollywood industry.

Different B-town celebs expressed their grief and mourned the loss in different ways; on social media, by donating to families of the martyred jawans and by calling for a ban on cultural exchange.

On Monday, team Total Dhamaal made a donation of Rs 50 lakh to the aggrieved families and decided to not release the film in Pakistan. Walking on the same footsteps, today, Maddock Films founder Dinesh Vijan took a strong stand in the wake of the cowardly attack.

The filmmaker cancelled the contract with Pakistan distributor and would not be releasing the next two films under its banner – Luka Chuppi and Arjun Patiala in the neighbouring country’s territory.

A complete ban on Pakistani actors and artistes working in the film industry was announced by the All India Cine Workers Association on Monday. This came in a day after the warning to music companies by Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) which asked record labels to drop singers from Pakistan.
