Foreign dramas will have a ‘devastating’ effect on Pakistani productions: Fawad Chaudhry

Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry has stated that foreign dramas will have a ‘devastating’ long-run effect on Pakistani productions. The show that was allowed to be broadcast on the directives of Prime Minister Imran Khan, gained massive popularity in the country. The federal minister used a Tweet to exclaim his ‘surprise’ at the PTV for “taking pride on other countries productions”. 

Since the airing of renowned Turkish Drama, “Dirilis: Ertugurl” on PTV, Pakistani artists have been divided on the opinion whether foreign content should be allowed to broadcast or not.
