The much awaited Hollywood film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was also released across some cities of the country, which meant limited shows for the Pakistani films. Pakistani celebrities weren’t pleased with the release of Doctor Strange as cinema-goers preferred watching the Hollywood movie.

According to reports, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness collected a whopping PKR 7 crore at the box office. It should be noted that the movie wasn’t released in some cities.

Members of Pakistan’s film fraternity, including Adnan Siddiqui, Wajahat Rauf, Yasir Nawaz, Syed Noor, and Hasan Zia,  also held press conference against cinemas for choosing foreign films over local cinema.

Adnan Siddiqui also took to his Twitter account to shed light on how Doctor Strange impacted the five Pakistani films. In a tweet, he said that the Hollywood mega-hit could have waited for a few days. He added: “The last thing we need when the industry is finally opening up after two years is some foreign film hijacking our screens and relegating us in a corner.”

However, netizens didn’t agree with the veteran actor. They urged him to “make better movies instead of crying about foreign films.” Here’s how netizens reacted to Adnan Siddiqui tweet:
