Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan are undoubtedly the only two actors that everyone has been waiting for to work together ever since their un forgettable chemistry in “Humsafar” worked wonders. Albeit the two were seen together in some award ceremonies, talk shows and few ad campaigns but fans sure could never get enough of them together. The only film they did together, “The Legend of Maula Jatt”, is far from releasing in cinemas and even the producers sound uncertain about its theatrical release. But here we bring to you the biggest news.
Previously Pakistani Cinema exclusively updated its readers about Fawad Khan’s debut film project as producer. The film was said to star Fawad and Mahira in lead roles. The latest exclusive update on the project is that Fawad has begun shooting this film today on January 24th in Lahore.
Mahira Khan’s today’s Instagram story says “Pack up for today”, without giving much about the project. As per our sources the click has been taken after the first day shoot of the same project. Film is titled “Neelofar” and Mahira will play the titular Neelofar, a blind woman in this film. Mahira is also shooting Nabeel and Fizza’s “Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad” in Karachi and she flew from Karachi to Lahore to shoot the first spell of “Neelofar”.
Film will be directed by a Lahore based debutante director who has some TVC’s on his credit. For cinematography a USA based DOP is roped in. Film is expected to release on Eid-ul-Azha and if that happens, it will clash with two major films “Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad” and “London Nahi Jaunga”. In any case, fans of Mahira and Fawad would be elated that they will get to see their favorite stars this year in multiple projects even if TLMJ doesn’t make it to cinemas. While Mahira has “Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad” for this year’s slate, Fawad will be seen in “Neelofar” and “Money Back Guarantee”.
Stay tuned for more exclusive updates.
