Last year in June, Minister of Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry had revealed that Pakistan will be taking stringent measures to strengthen its cultural ties with Saudi Arabia. Part of this would involve the latter incorporating the expertise of Pakistani artists in its upcoming art schools.

Chaudhry had then taken to his Twitter to share a message after his visit to Saudi Arabia. "Back in Islamabad after a very pleasant visit to Riyadh. Had the honour of attending the inaugural ceremony of Culture Ministry headed by a dynamic and spirited HRH Prince Bader Al Saud - a front line warrior of HRH Mohammad Bin Salman for his vision of cultural revolution in KSA," he wrote.

Now, in a recent development, Information Minister Shibli Faraz, while talking to Arab News, confirmed that the process of collaborating with Saudi Arabia has sped up. “Some dramas got dubbed and were sent there [Saudi Arabia]… some films... Some even the Royal family watched, like Parchi,” he told the publication. “There is a lot of similarity in our cultures, so on the basis of that, we would want that we can do more joint productions in films and dramas. This is a very powerful tool to bring two countries, two relationships, closer together.”
