India and Pakistan have bad relations. They have argued for many years over borders in Kashmir. Now, movies and actors are a problem. Pakistan's cinemas have banned Indian movies. Cinema owners want to support Pakistani soldiers in Kashmir. The ban is because India stopped Pakistani actors from working in Bollywood.

Bollywood movies are very popular in Pakistan. Cinemas and actors will lose a lot of money. Actors will get less money in Pakistan than in Bollywood. Pakistani actors said it was time to stop working in Bollywood. Movie star Agha Ali said: "I think it should have been done a long time ago."
