Pathaan Becomes First Film To Release In Bangladesh Since 1971
Shah Rukh Khan’s blockbuster movie Pathaan is set to make history with its theatrical release in Bangladesh on May 12, 2023. This is the first time since the country’s formation in 1971 that a Hindi-language Bollywood film will be released in Bangladesh. The decision to allow Hindi-language films to release in Bangladesh was made by a consortium of 19 Bangladesh film associations in February 2023.
They suggested that 10 films release a year, and Pathaan is first of them. The film is directed by Siddharth Anand of War fame and produced by Aditya Chopra under his banner, Yash Raj Films. It stars Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles, with John Abraham as the antagonist and Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana in pivotal roles.
The release of Pathaan in Bangladesh is significant as Bollywood movies have been prohibited from screening in local cinemas since the country gained independence in 1972. The decision to allow Hindi-language films to release in Bangladesh was met with protests in the past, but the consortium’s decision to allow 10 films to release a year is a positive step towards promoting cultural exchange between the two countries.
Cinema has always been a unifying force between nations, races, and cultures. It transcends borders, galvanizes people, and plays a significant hand in bringing people together. The release of Pathaan in Bangladesh is a testament to the power of cinema to bridge cultural divides and promote understanding between nations. With its release in Bangladesh, Pathaan will definitely create history and entertain audiences in the neighboring country.
