2018 was a good year for Pakistani cinema. Cake, Jawani Phir Nahi Aani 2, Motorcycle Girl were all received well at the box office and although Load Wedding wasn’t able to rake in the big bucks, it continues to win accolades internationally.
After bagging a nomination in the Best Film category at the Jaipur International Film Festival, Load Wedding has now again been nominated in the Best Feature Film category at the Rajasthan International Film Festival.
The film, which featured Mehwish Hayat and Fahad Mustafa in lead roles, received glowing reviews when it released on Eidul Azha last year but clashed with JPNA2 and Parwaaz Hai Junoon, resulting in its failure at the box office.
However, the film continues to get global recognition as not only will it be releasing on Netflix but, will also be screened at several film festivals in India.

Last year, director Nabeel Qureshi revealed to Something Haute that his films Actor-in-Law, Na Maloom Afraad and NMA2 will be screened by The South Asia Forum for Art & Creative Heritage (SAFACH) in India. Additionally, Load Wedding received a nomination in the Best Film category at the Jaipur International Film Festival (JiFF) which is likely to be attended by the lead cast, director and producer Fizza Ali Meerza.
