Apparently, Humayun Saeed was supposed to play Omar Shahzad’s character in ‘Azaadi’

Three upcoming Pakistani films have everyone talking; Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2, Load Wedding and Parwaaz Hai Junoon are releasing on Eid ul Azha and promotions for all three films are about to get crazy. We met up with the cast and crew of JPNA2 on the set of a promotional song recording and sat down with Omar Shahzad, who’s making a brief but significant appearance in the film, to talk about his character.

Omar will be playing Raj, Kubra Khan’s Indian fiancé in the film. But it turns out that this isn’t the first time he’s playing an Indian character. Apparently, he also played one in the patriotic flick Azaadi.

“I had a cameo in Azaadi and played a character called Raj,” Omar informed when we sat down over a cup of tea on the set. “Actually Humayun bhai was supposed to do that character but he was having trouble with dates so I was asked to do it instead. We were all filming in Dubai when I came back to do it.”

That is interesting!

He went on to share how supportive Fahad Mustafa, Nadeem Baig and Humayun Saeed were during the filming of JPNA2. Omar now has offers to do more films and he’s in talks with Six Sigma, Humayun Saeed’s production house that is aiming to produce 5-6 films a year.
