As the new year commences we have quite a lot of films to look forward to, a major one being the sequel to hit film Jawani Phir Nahi Ani. In an interview with Fifi Haroon for BBC Urdu, director Nadeem Baig spoke about the film and the latest addition to the entourage – Fahad Mustafa!
Nadeem Baig confirmed the rumour that Fahad Mustafa travels with his whole entourage, makeup artist, manager, and trainer included.
“It’s unbelievable how passionate he is about his workout,” the director revealed that even after a long day of shooting, Fahad would dedicate an hour and a half of his time just to work out. “Seeing his dedication, you can tell that he brings his trainer with him because of a reason, not to prove that he’s a big star.”
The director also commended Fahad’s professional skills, “He’s a very very cooperative actor, he listens to the director and is very good with the rest of the actors.”
When asked that Fahad might not fit in with the rest of the male characters since he looks much younger, the director assured that his role in the film will be believable.
Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2 is scheduled to release on Eid-ul-Azha this year, which means we’ll have to watch and find out! You can hear the full interview here.
