“My films will not be like TV dramas” – Ahsan Khan

Ahsan Khan

There are two things that are famous about Ahsan Khan nowadays. Firstly, he’s really involved with a lot of charitable work. Secondly, he is busy with two upcoming films, Chupan Chupai starring Neelam Munir, and Rehbraa starring Ayesha Omar. Something Haute caught up with Ahsan between his busy schedule to find out how his films are coming along.

“My shooting for Chupan Chupai is done; just one song is left and we will be shooting that in Dubai,” he shared. The location actually is a little further away from Dubai as the video is being shot in the desert. The film is based on Karachi’s roadside culture. It’s sort of like a dark comedy. Basically the film touches upon the issue of unemployment in our society. When boys start committing crime because of lack of opportunities. The film has Javed Sheikh, Talat Hussain and Adnan Jaffer and it has been directed by Mohsin Ali.”

“I feel confident about Rehbraa because the director Amin Iqbal has a lot of television experience. He’s done at least 20 TV projects, and they all have been great TV plays. The songs have all been shot really well, we just have 8 days of shooting left which we are completing in Lahore.”

We have to say that Ahsan has incredible chemistry with Ayesha Omar and we can say that because the pair looked really good in a shoot they did together. What was it like working with Ayesha Omar? “My work experience with Ayesha has been great so far and I have a lot of fun with her because I feel that she’s a very experienced and a sensible actress. Her last film was also good; she performed well. She’s very charming, and obviously she’s hot!”

Is Ahsan feeling confident about the release of his films? It’s such a hit and miss system nowadays since filmmakers are experimenting and learning on the job. One can never be sure of how the film will turn out. But what does Ahsan think about the outcome of both Chupan Chupai and Rehbraa?

“I can guarantee one thing that both these films won’t look like TV dramas,” he said. “Recently we’ve been watching films which remind us of TV plays. I can’t say for sure whether people will love or hate the films, but I can guarantee that they are cinematic. I have really enjoyed working in both these films. I was offered at least six different feature films and I chose to do these two because of the credibility of the directors and because the scripts were interesting too.”
