پاکستان کے کسی سینما میں بھارتی فلموں کی نمائش نہیں ہوگی۔ ڈراموں، فلموں اور اس نوع کا بھارتی مواد کے پاکستان میں نشر ہونے پر مکمل پابندی ہوگی۔ کشمیریوں کے زخموں پر مرہم رکھیں گے۔ ہر وہ اقدام کریں گے جس سے عظیم کشمیریوں کے بے مثال حوصلے مزید بلند ہوں۔— Firdous Ashiq Awan (@Dr_FirdousPTI) August 8, 2019

Drama, films and Indian content of this kind will be completely banned in Pakistan. They will ointment on the wounds of Kashmiris. Every action will be taken to increase the unprecedented morale of the great Kashmiris.”
In 2016 the Indian government had conducted a Surgical strike aiming at the terrorist camps in Pakistan, leading to tons of amendments in the equation with the neighbouring country, Pakistan. Since then the Indian film industry had stopped hiring talents from Pakistan and the channel 'Zindagi' that used to air Pakistani serials was also stopped overnight.
But it was only after Pulwama terrorist attack on February 14, 2019, in Jammu and Kashmir where 40 CRPF jawans were martyred, the film industry out a full stop on all kinds of cultural exchange with the country. The producers decided that their films will not be distributed in Pakistan and no Indian film will release in the neighbouring country.
