The chances of Tubelight having a late release in Pakistan is also out of question.

Salman Khan’s highly anticipated upcoming movie Tubelight might not release in Pakistan around Eid or even later as a few local filmmakers and organizations have demanded the release of the film in the country should be postponed.

This will definitely affect the film’s overseas business since Salman’s films have a huge fan base there.The Pakistan Film Distributors Association and the Pakistan Film Producers Association, along with various local film-makers, are actively trying to stall the release of Tubelight, citing better business for the Pakistani films scheduled to release at the same time.
 

The chances of Tubelight having a late release in Pakistan is also out of question since the distributors have to pay a huge amount of approximately $5 lac and nobody would be comfortable paying that huge a sum for a late release.

Piracy is also a big player and with a late release, the distributors may lose as big as 30% of business due to it. Yalghaar and Shor Sharaba are two Pakistani films that have currently been slated for a release on the Eid 2017. “Indian films dominate our box office the whole year round. It’s only fair that Eid — being a Muslim festival — should not be. Besides, as Pakistanis, we must support the release of local content first,” said Sohail Khan, producer of Shor Sharaba. “Shor Sharaba is supposed to release on Eid-ul-Fitr and if the government doesn’t stall Tubelight, I will not release my film as a protest,” he added.
