No cinema halls in state to screen first Kashmiri language film

Kashmir Daily is the name of the first ever Kashmiri language film released in 30 years.

However, the movie cannot be screened in Kashmir as there are no cinema halls in the state.

The state has not had a movie hall since 1989 when a terror outfit called the 'Allah Tigers' put a ban on them. They had threatened the cinema hall owners and caused them to be shut down.

The filmmaker Hussain Khan is now screening it at a makeshift hall in Srinagar. He has used his own funds to make the film that shows the life of a journalist.
