Having worked in projects like ‘Mein Hoon Shahid Afridi’, lead actor Shehzad Sheikh states that “It’s basically a romantic-comedy which revolves around a bunch of friends who plan a journey from Karachi to Lahore in a jeep.” He also tells us that “The adventurous voyage features interesting incidents all inter-connected with each other.”
When questioned about characters and their roles, Shehzad reveals “There is no supporting character; everyone has a specific role, although Ayesha and me are the main couple in the film”.
The movie was formally launched recently at Karachi’s DHA Golf Club, where all faces working in front of and behind the camera were present.
“The script is quite good and we all are thrilled to work on it,” states Shehzad.
Ayesha Omar, another main actor involved in the on screen romance tells us
“I live in Sheikh’s neighborhood in the movie and when he plans to go out on an adventurous road journey I join him and his friends. ”
She also discusses the sophistication and wit of the script.
“After reading the script I immediately fell in love with the character – it took me only a few seconds to convince myself that I wanted to be a part of it. Plus. Wajahat is an old friend, so it’s always great to work with people you know and are comfortable with.”
So far the movie promises humour, adventure and adorable romance. The shooting will start in a weeks time and we are counting the days till it comes out!
