After the ban on Pakistani artists in India in response to Uri attack, Pakistani exhibitors have also boycotted the Indian film’s screening in Pakistani cinemas which has changed the whole scenario. Some film-makers rush to finish their projects, others announce new ones in a bid to not let the industry deteriorate.

After five years Shoaib Mansoor has in recent times proclaimed his comeback for the initial time since the release of Bol. Pursuing it, pop singer Ali Zafar has, at last, decided to come into local cinema and make his Pakistani movie debut.

Ahsan Rahim, who is the Video director, has lined Zafar in for Rahim’s first feature movie. The title of the action-comedy film is not yet decided.

Rahim stated in an interview “I always wanted to make such a film because the genre excites me and I believe it is unexplored in the Pakistan market. We plan to take it on the floors next year and release it soon after,”

In effect, Zafar has pulled out of a Bollywood venture and also postponed his production Deosai to concentrate on Rahim’s movie. The film-maker disclosed that he and Zafar determined to group up for this movie when they were at a dinner together. Rahim further added “Zafar and I first discussed the idea while having ‘hardcore’ desi food. As the conversation went ahead, it got him more and more excited. So much so, that he pulled out of a big Bollywood project and pushed his own film Deosai for later,”

He continued by saying that “I am excited to be working with him as I find him to be an extremely versatile and talented actor and I feel he can play this role best.”

It was inquired about the female lead in the movie and the answer was, “We are currently in the process of auditioning the right actor to star opposite him.”

Rahim has formerly verified his mettle by directing a few of Pakistan’s most well-known music videos like Laga RehSajaniaKismat Apne Hath MainPreetoDosti and popular TV ad films.
