"Taj Mahal - An Eternal Love Story" will be the first Indian film in 41 years to be released in Pakistan, Indo-Asian News Service reported Sunday.
The film's clearance for a Pakistan release is expected to pave way for new ties between the film industries of the two countries, the news agency said.
The Indian movie industry has been a little surprised at the decision since Pakistan had just held back the release of "Mughal- e-Azam," a classic popular movie shot in the 1960s.
"Taj Mahal - An Eternal Love Story," directed by renowned Indian actor and director Akbar Khan, visualized a love story between Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and his second wife Mumtaz Mahal some 400 years ago, which was behind India's most famous monument Taj Mahal.
Many Indian films were popular in Pakistan but most of them were seen across the border as pirated DVDs.
