Good news for film industry

KARACHI: The news of a Pakistani movie making over a half a million is definitely reason enough to take pride in the country’s growing entertainment industry. Actor Humayun Saeed’s movie Punjab Nahi Jaungi that was released last year has not only garnered enough popularity in the country but has also attracted global audiences making it a big success at the box office. Such efforts should be lauded so that our filmmakers are encouraged to make movies that leave a global mark.
