After great success at Busan and an Oscar submission, the highly acclaimed film is set to screen across the border
As Shiv Sena continues to threaten Pakistani talent, one Pakistani film takes a daring jump and crosses the border to mesmerise Indian audiences.
After creating waves at the 20th Busan International Film Festival and being selected by the Pakistani Academy Selection Committee to be considered for the Oscars, Moor is gearing up for its screening at the Goa Film Festival.

Co-producer of the film’s international version, Hasan Zaidi, confirmed the news to The Express Tribune. However, it is yet to be seen if the film will also be commercially released in India. “We are working on distribution,” Zaidi said.
The film is also expected to have a premiere in the UAE soon:
