We tried to talk to the federal government officially but got no response, senior actor Javed Sheikh said that the Prime Minister should take immediate action on this issue, Earlier it was said that our films are not good but now the quality of our films has increased.

I appeal to the Prime Minister to take notice of this matter. Actor Adnan Siddiqui said that “Dum Mastam” is my first film as a director and producer. It is not an easy task. You have taken a booking from a foreign movie, that movie would have done the same business even if it seemed later, we had only asked for one week, Yasir Nawaz said from Corona The first shooting started, three or four days later Corona came, at first I thought to bear the loss of three or four days but then I thought how will our film industry move forward if we do that, he said people who have not been in cinema for many years
