LAHORE: Prominent actress Atiqa Odho has said that Pakistani film industry’s revival has started and that's why she has decided to produce her own film.

Talking to APP here on Monday, she said that a number of people from the film industry have died waiting for revival of the Pakistani film industry from the last 20 years.

She said that she is lucky to see the revival of industry in her lifetime.

Odho appreciated the government for imposing a ban on import of Indian films. She also said, "It is golden time for Pakistani film directors and producers to come forward and produce films of international standard."

She regretted that films of many countries were being exhibited in Pakistan while Pakistani films are not imported by those countries. She further suggested that Pakistani importers should import foreign films on reciprocal basis.
