Yes the news is right! Televisions favourite damsel-in-destress, Sajal Ali is all set to debut on the big screen with ‘Ishq 2020’.
The movie is being produced by Crew Motion Pictures, the production house behind very famous Pakistani movie Dukhtar.
Actor Muneeb Butt will play the lead character opposite Sajjal. Both the actors were recently seen in Pakistani movie Halla Gulla. Actress Sanam Chaudhry will also be appearing in the film as a prominent character.
Muneed Butt shared some interesting insight into the plot of the movie:
“It’s like a hodgepodge of a number of different flicks such as the Ranbir-Deepika starrer Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Jab We Met. I wouldn’t restrict it to one genre; there’s romance, action, comedy but at the heart of the story, there is a love triangle.”
Ishq 2020 will be shot in many different parts of the country, including Lahore, Bhawalpur, Naraan, Kaghan, to name a few.
He further shared,
“Since the movie revolves around two characters eloping and chronicles that journey, in the process, we see lots of different parts of the country.”
When asked if there will be an item song in the movie, Muneeb said;
“Of course there’s an item song; a movie doesn’t work without any item number these days it seems. There’s a song in the movie, which will be shot at a palace, where two ranis have a dance-off so the team is in talks with Madhuri and Resham. Let’s see how it pans out!”
The movie is set to be released next year on Eid-ul-Azha.
