Cinema Quiz-11: Breaking Boundaries!

10 The guy on the left is handing over something to Pervez Mussharaf. This was something remarkable…who’s the guy on the left? What is he handing over to Mussharaf? And what’s the significance of this event?

Ans: Mr.Akbar Asif, the grandson of Asif, director of Mughal-e-azam. He is presenting a reel of the re-coloured print of the film for its re-release in Pakistan. Mughal-E-Azam was the first Indian film to be released in Pakistan after more than 40 years. A complete ban on Indian films was enforced after the war in 1965.

Trivia: 1. Shoaib Mansoor’s  “Khuda ke Liye” ,a  Pakistani film was released in India soon after “Mughal-E-Azam” was  released in Pakistan. Good Politics? Maybe…:)

2. “Taare Zameen Par” was also to be released in Pakistan. But, they dropped the idea when the Censor board in Pakistan raised a red flag saying that “There are no Pakistani actors in the film and the film was not even shot in Pakistan”!! Bad Politics? Maybe..:D

(Anantha Krishna and Swagath cracked this one…)
