Mumbai: A bad news for Bollywood superstar Salman Khan as Pakistani filmmakers have launched a movement against Eid-release of his upcoming flick Tubelight in their country.

The filmmakers, in association with the Film Distribution Association of Pakistan, have pleaded that the release of any Indian movie on a Muslim festival will be against the interests of Pakistani films.

It may be mentioned that two big Pakistani projects, 'Yalghaar' and 'Shor Sharaba', are scheduled for Eid 2017 release in Pakistan.

“If ‘Tubelight’ also releases on Eid, it will certainly hit the business of these Pakistani films and that will not help our industry,” actor Mustafa Qureshi said.

The protesters have cited a law passed by the Federal Ministry of Information in 2010 which forbids all Indian movies from release on occasion of any Muslim festival

"If required we can even go to the court," producer Altaf Hussain said.

As per the sources, the Salman Khan-starrer Tubelight is most unlikely to release in Pakistan on Eid this year.

It is worth mentioning that the Kabir Khan-directorial Indian historical war drama is scheduled for an Eid release in India this year.
