Akbar Khan's colossal historical 'Taj Mahal - An Eternal Love Story' has set a historic precedent of sorts by being the first Indian film in 41 years to be released in Pakistan. The film's clearance for a Pakistan release is likely to pave the way for new ties between the two nations and has come as a wave of pleasant surprise in the trade, considering Pakistan's previous decision to hold back the release of the classic, MUGHAL-E-AZAM, which was released in India in colour last year. The film's release could not go ahead due to bureaucratic problems despite President Pervez Musharraf extending his wholehearted support to the screening of the 1960 classic, after receiving a request from the family of K Asif, the director of MUGHAL-E-AZAM.
It is a known fact that Indian films have got a tremendous following in Pakistan, which is one of the reasons why there is a flourishing parallel DVD industry with rampant piracy across the border. The clearance of TAJ MAHAL- An Eternal Love Story, will now encourage other producers to look at the huge market prospects across the border.
