Churails, the original Pakistani web series has been restored on the online screening platform Zee5 for viewership in Pakistan.
The latest development was shared by the director of Churails, Asim Abbasi on social media.
It turns out that Pakistan Telecommunications Authority, PTA had contacted the platform after receiving complaints about the show.
“We cannot block (content) on our own, but we can write to the platform, which we have done,” the official said on condition of anonymity.
The online plat form, however, had restored the series for viewership in Pakistan.
The statement form the ZEE5 Official said:
“Our aim has always been to create content that resonates strongly with viewers across the globe. Churails has been a phenomenal success story for us and has been lauded and loved the world over. The show was taken off the platform in Pakistan purely in compliance with a directive that we received.
We have now addressed the matter and reinstated the show on our platform. We have yesterday also launched the trailer of our next Zindagi Original ‘Ek Jhoothi Love Story’, which we hope will go on to be hugely loved by our audiences.”
Taking it to social media, Asim Abbasi wrote, “The witches who wouldn’t burn. Not yet. Not today. #Churails is now back on in Pakistan. And there is no better woman, a better actor, better screengrab that embodies my current mood!”.
