Don’t judge ‘Actor in law’ prior to its release

Na Maloon Afraad was released almost two years from Tuesday, by director Nabeel Qureshi and there was a thought about the movie and its debuting maker that they were no match for Shaan’s Operation 021 and Hrithik Roshan’s Bang Bang that were also slating on the Eidul Azha of 2014, but things altered when Na Maloom Afraad’s box office numbers were made public.

In the present day Qureshi and Fizza Ali Meerza who is his screenwriting partner, are amid the much victorious film-makers of the country. Their recent movie Actor In Law is going to release and the pair publicize its trailer on Tuesday.

The trailer is of 173 minutes and exhibits some vital plot points; they may have decided to keep the story of the movie under the covers. The film is about a lawyer (Fahad Mustafa) who ports a burning wish to become an actor, but his father (Om Puri) does not agree upon.

The trailer showcases the story parallels amid this “social comedy” and Indian National Award-winning film Jolly LLB.

Qureshi giggled at the contrast, by stating that “Even prior to the release of Na Maloom Afraad, people were pointing out how the movie is similar to Indian films like Hera Pheri and C Kkompany. It wasn’t until they saw the full movie that they realized that it was a completely different film.”

An additional most important discussing point from the movie’s trailer is the issue of minorities, with the film’s leading lady taking a jibe at the dilemma of Pakistan’s marginalized communities. Clearance the air on the specific line and if the subject of minorities would comprise a fundamental theme of the film, he elaborated, “All I can say is that the trailer consists of a few scattered lines and it is too early to draw any assumptions.”


Provided the victory of their debut movie, it was just rational for the production team to up the ante with their subsequent venture. Qureshi further continued “That was something obvious and we’ve made this movie on a bigger scale,” Qureshi added “There are close to 300 extras dancing alongside Fahad [Mustafa] in the title track,”

The film is going to release on Eidul Azha this year. Actor In Law is anticipated to go toe-to-toe with one more Pakistani movie, Janaan. The director stated that “When we announced the release date for Actor In Law, Janaan wasn’t releasing on Eidul Azha,”

The film is produced under the banner of Filmwala Pictures and Actor In Law characterizes a group cast, involving Fahad Mustafa, Mehwish Hayat, Alyy Khan, and will also mark the Pakistani movie debut of well-known Bollywood actor Om Puri.

The movie have four-song composed by Shani Arshad and the music launch will go on in July.
