Akshay Kumar has said that he would like to work on an Indo-Pakistani co-production.

The actor, who took part in a live video conference with fans in Lahore for the promotion of Khiladi 786, said Pakistan was an important audience for Indian films.

"I am thankful to the Pakistan government for allowing the screening of Indian films," said Kumar. "The basic purpose of holding this video conference was to expand people-to-people contacts through the media," PTI reports.

The Rowdy Rathore star said he was keen to visit Pakistan with his film: "I have been working on having the film's premiere in Pakistan, for which I will try to come here."

Pakistan ended a four-decade ban on the screening of Indian movies in 2006. Strict censorship regulations have resulted in several Bollywood films being banned in Pakistan, including Agent Vinod.

It has been suggested that Yash Chopra's Jab Tak Hain Jaan may also face a ban by the Pakistani censor board after the film's trailer was not allowed to be broadcast on Pakistani TV.

Akshay Kumar's Khiladi 786 will be released on December 7.
