Eidul Azha 2016 seems to be busy with Nabeel Qureshi’s Actor in Law and Mohsin Ali’s Chupan Chupai.

Pakistani producer Sohail Khan has incorporated Indian director Hasnain Hyderabadwala to assist with his recent romantic-comedy that will also go to screen on this Eid.

The movie, with the name of Shor Sharaba, the producer stated, will be a family movie. He shared in an interview as, “It will attract all cinema-goers who have been disappointed by many films in the past,”

Khan stated that Shor Sharaba is an innovative take on the Bollywood way of comedies. Whereas a director from Bollywood industry is wheeling it, the venture consists a Pakistani cast with actors, for example, Mustafa Qureshi, Nisho Begum, Meera and Malik Aqeel previously on the panel. On the further side, singer Rabi Pirzada will make her silver screen debut with the movie. The song will be composed by local musicians Zulfiqar Attre and Shaifo Khan and is anticipated to attribute some Indian musicians also. Khan further added as “This will be a completely different kind experience for them,”

About the funding of the venture, he continued as “Digital cinemas are present in all big cities of the country now. It is a good time for Pakistani cinema and for those associated with film-making.” The film is at present in the shooting process. He added, “We were waiting for the last four years to starting shooting,”

He is the view that regardless of a lack of government support for cross-border collaborations, he considered of going ahead with the collaboration on his own. The producer stated as, “I cannot say it is an Indo-Pak co-production. Previously, only Indians have been reaping benefits from such projects. It is time we strengthen our own film industry, learn from them and begin to generate quality film content,”

The producer was further told about the storyline of the movie. He explained “Shor Sharaba is about the multiple feuds two families get into. This is our society’s story where even siblings fight over things such as family property. I think people will want to see such films,”

He continued by saying as, “Cinema houses have shut down in the past because movies have not been up to the mark. Times have changed and young, educated filmmakers in our industry are doing a great job,”
