Not just Mahesh Bhatt’s films, but even plays based on his films have been well-received in Pakistan. The filmmaker, who often calls himself a facilitator of the cultural dialogue between India and Pakistan, had earlier told IANS that Bollywood is responsible for reviving the interest in cinema in the neighbouring country.
