Just when we were busy anticipating Fahad Mustafa’s addition in the Jawani Phir Nahi Ani series, the actor also announced his and Mehwish Hayat’s next film Load Wedding, with filmmaking duo Nabeel Qureshi and Fizza Ali Meerza. In a recent interview with Instep, Fahad Mustafa spoke about the upcoming film, working with Mehwish Hayat and Mawra Hocane, as well as the on-going shooting of JPNA2.
“We must be doing something right that a director and his actors are never bored of working with one another,” Fahad said when speaking of reuniting with his Actor-In-Law team. “Whereas Nabeel and I have a bachpan ka pyaar; he keeps coming back to me and I don’t know what his problem is so now I’m doing his film as well,” the actor claims, in what we’re sure was his signature tongue-in-cheek manner!
What was most interesting was the praise he had for his co-star Mehwish Hayat. “I believe there is no better actress than Mehwish Hayat in the country currently; the rest of them are just big names. If there’s anyone who puts her heart and soul into a project and works hard, it’s Mehwish,” Fahad said.

The actor is not one to mince his words and is known for saying what he feels, and clearly, Mehwish has more than his nod of approval!
The Na-Maloom Afraad star also mentioned that he was “pleasantly surprised” after shooting opposite Mawra Hocane, for JPNA 2. “I think Mawra again is somebody who is very hard-working. She was truly involved in the process and I’ve had a lovely time working with her (so far),” he stated.
According to Fahad, Load Wedding is an “innocent love-story” that chronicles the journey of an ordinary man. The film is set to release on Eid-ul-Adha next year, as is JPNA2.
