Meera is saddened at the recent statement by the Pakistan Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, that the Pakistan government has allowed the exhibition of only one Indian movie on the basis of a court decision, and not all films from India.
"She is of the view that the governments should adopt a more liberal approach to films, art and culture, like it does when it comes to cricket and politics," said the actress's spokesperson and publicist Dale Bhagwagar in Mumbai.
Meera, who has just returned to India from a month long stay in Lahore, has been pleading to the authorities of her country, including the Censor Board and film producer's associations, to promote stronger ties between India and Pakistan through the medium of cinema.
Pakistan recently said, it would permit public screening of the 1984 Indian movie 'Sohni Mahiwal', a love story set in Punjab , but denied having lifted a 40-year-old ban on viewing of Indian movies.
After the 1965 war with India, Pakistan had clamped a ban on public screening of Indian films. It stayed, despite appeals from the Pakistan film industry to allow Indian films to be screened in its theatres and permit the two industries to cooperate with each other.
