Mahira, Sheheryar To Share Screen For Third Time In Asim Raza’s Next Film
Director Asim Raza is set to return to the silver screen with his second film after the success of his first directorial Ho Mann Jahaan.
The film, Paray Hat Luv, will star Mahira Khan and Sheheryar Munawar and will release on Eidul Azha 2019.
Mahira and Sheheryar also appeared in Raza’s debut film, but the director promises the romantic comedy will be “very different” from Ho Mann Jahaan.
“A director has a signature style so that’s that but Paray Hat Luv is very different from Ho Mann Jahaan,” Raza said while speaking to Geo News.
“Ho Mann Jahaan was a serious drama film with a very different story and characters,” he continued.
The director further said this time, Mahira and Sheheryar will be paired together unlike in Ho Mann Jahaan where Mahira was seen with Adeel Hussain.
Raza added that Paray Hat Luv is “is young, fresh and vivacious”. “The content of the film is engaging and the canvas is larger and vibrant.”
“The story plays on an underlying fear of today’s generation to commit to anything in life. The story promises to be a journey of romance, emotion, drama and witty puns,” he continued.
Regarding why he chose Mahira and Sheheryar, the director said, “Mahira first worked with me when she was very young and I have seen her grow as an actor and she’s someone I can work with well.”
“As a director, you choose stars according to who you can work with easily and who you know will deliver and fully commit to work over a period of six months,” he added.
The director further said that the film will be produced by Sheheryar Munawar and has been written by seasoned writer Imran Aslam.
Azaan Sami Khan has been given the responsibility of music.
The cast of the film also includes Nadeem Baig, Hina Dilpazeer, Ahmed Ali Butt, Zara Noor Abbass, Rachel Viccaji and others.
