She said that since partition, Pakistan and India’s relations witnessed various ups and downs as a ban was imposed on sports and films whenever mutual relations between them became tense and unstable. “It is unfortunate that art and cinema, which are like a cultural bridge and makes people come closer are being held hostage by forces of hate.” But at this time when there is rising tensions and films in a politically driven tit for tat maneuvers, Maria Javed got an international award in India.
