”Lafangey represents story of fear of every common man who has a hero hidden in himself. It’s a journey of how these apparently common men (the four principle characters) overcome their inner fears to outshine themselves”, described Khaaliq.
He further revealed the main cast of the film. The movie features Mani, Mobeen Gabol and Salim Mairaj alongside Sami Khan in lead roles as four ‘Lafangeys’ and the presence of such names surely promises the powerful performances that a laugh riot requires.
