India and Pakistan have bad relations. They have argued for many years over borders in Kashmir. The latest disagreement is about movies and actors. Pakistan's biggest cinemas have banned Indian movies in Pakistan's big cities. Cinema owners say the ban is to support Pakistani soldiers risking their lives in Kashmir. The ban is because Indian moviemakers stopped Pakistani actors from working in Bollywood movie studios in Mumbai.

Bollywood movies are very popular in Pakistan. Cinemas will lose a lot of money. People will stay at home. Pakistani actors will also lose money. They will get less money from making movies in Pakistan than in Bollywood. Pakistani actors said it was time to stop working in Bollywood. Actor Hamza Ali Abbasi said: "Pakistani artists must boycott Bollywood." Movie star Agha Ali agreed. He said: "I think it should have been done a long time ago."
