Everyone knows that Shaan Shahid is a true patriot.

So when on Monday the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif constituted a committee headed by Minister of State for Information Marriyum Aurangzeb to look into the matter of Indian movies being banned from local cinemas, the actor had a suggestion.

Shahid took to his social media accounts to make a "humble request" to the PM which entailed that if a committee was being made to screen Indian films here, one should also be formed to ensure that Pakistani films are shown in cinemas across the border.

Seems like a fair request. We wonder if the PM will take it into consideration...

In the past, screening of Bin Roye in India was banned due to objections by a group called Maharashtra Navnirman Chitrapat Karmachari Sena (MNSKS).

Bowing to the demands of MNSKS, Bollywood distributor B4U films decided to ban the Mahira Khan and Humayun Saeed starrer in Maharashtra.
