Pakistan's 'Jago Hua Savera' dropped from Jio MAMI festival

IANS  |  Mumbai 

Amid the growing tensions between and Pakistan, the Jio MAMI 18th Film Festival with Star has decided not to screen the Pakistani classic "Jago Hua Savera".

The film was to be screened as part of the Restored Classics Section of the event. The festival organisers cited the "current situation" between the two nations as the reason behind the decision.

"Given the current situation, the Jio MAMI 18th Film Festival with Star has decided not to programme 'Jago Hua Savera' as part of the Restored Classics Section," the statement read.

The decision comes after Prithvi Maske, President of Sangharsh Foundation, an NGO in Mumbai, filed a complaint at Amboli police station against Jio MAMI for screening of the 1959 Pakistani film -- directed by A.J. Kardar.

Over 180 films from 54 countries, including features, documentaries, short films are to be showcased at the festival.

After the September 18 terrorist attack at an army camp in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir, ties between and have worsened. There are debates whether Pakistani artistes should be banned from working in amid tensions between the nations.

The film fest will begin from October 20 here.
