A prominent Pakistani producer rues that while Indian actors are very popular in his country, not many recognise Pakistani filmmakers and stars here.

"I'm a popular actor, director and producer back home, but sadly no one here even recognises me," Syed Yar Muhammad Shah, chairman of the Pakistan Film Producers Association, told IANS.

"If your actors come to Pakistan they get such a warm welcome," said Shah, who is also the managing director of Sindhi channel M.Y.T.V. Network.

He is part of a delegation of prominent Pakistani producers, directors, artistes and technicians that is in India to attend FICCI's Frames 2004, a global convention on the business of entertainment that started Monday.

Shah talked about the issues facing the Pakistani entertainment industry vis--vis India.

"We get all your Indian channels but not a single (private) channel of Pakistan is shown in India. We want to increase your revenue and work together as many people would like to watch Pakistani serials in India."

"I think if you see Indian movies - you will find more 'anti' messages than what we show on our TV. If you see any of our latest movies, I can assure you not even one movie shows anti-India messages," says Shah.

The delegation wants channels like PTV, ARY, KTN, Indus and GEO to be beamed in India.
