With each passing week, the Pakistani entertainment industry seems to be becoming a force to be reckoned with. From phenomenal thriller television drama Cheekh to the first romantic comedy web-series of the country, the maestros seems to be unstoppable and we are not complaining – and naturally, the space to announce it all remains Instagram.
Here are the top moments of the week that got us looking forward to these projects:
1) Wajahat Rauf announced his third film
After his successful franchise Karachi Se Lahore, director Wajahat Rauf ventured into the digital avenue of web-series. While the rumour mill was churning that KSL3 might never see the light of the day, the director himself shared a shot from his next project, calling it his ‘third film’. It will star Mehwish Hayat and Zara Noor Abbas, but we are expecting a full cast announcement soon.
2) Iman Ali will be seen on the big screen
Last week, it was announced that Feroze Khan along with Farhan Saeed will be seen on the big screen in the Urwa Hocane production film, Tich Button. But, what got fans excited this week was the final cast reveal which includes Sonya Hussyn and Iman Ali. The former will be seen on the screen after a hiatus of three years.
3) Ali Rehman Khan and Sanam Baloch will be seen as a fresh on-screen pair
Like many viewers, we were also getting tired of seeing the same pairing over and over again in different projects. Luckily that is about to change. Ali Rehman Khan and Sanam Baloch will be seen their forthcoming TV drama titled Khaas.
4) Enaaya began streaming
The highly anticipated web-series by Wajahat Rauf Enaaya is now streaming on Eros Now. The series is a romantic comedy and our first version of the musical drama genre. The first episode is available on YouTube, too.
5) Humayun Saeed hinted at JPNA3
The highest-grossing film of Pakistan, Jawani Phir Nahi Aani 2 was a fan and critics favourite. It packed them right kind of drama and humour to ensure the audience is entertained through and through. Currently on a cruise somewhere near Thailand, celebrating ARY President, Salman Iqbal’s 25th wedding anniversary, Humayun Saeed shared a picture hinting at the ‘script writing’ process and got everyone guessing.
The past week was filled with loads of announcements and we cannot wait for each one of them to materialize.
