Parwaaz Hai Junoon may not release on Eid after all and here’s why!

Airforce based film, Parwaaz Hai Junoon starring Hamza Ali Abbasi, Ahad Raza Mir and Haniya Aamir among others was all set to release on Eid ul Fitr this year. However, the film was issued a legal notice by stylist Soomar Rehman for not giving him due credit which resulted in a delay in the trailer release. And now the date of release has been shifted.

There has been a lot of speculation regarding the movie ever since; some say there are VFX issues, others said it’s because of the legal battle. To find out the truth, we contacted Momina Duraid.

“There are 6 Pakistani films coming on Eid ul Fitr and it’s a reason of concern and worry for all producers as it will be difficult for 6 films to even reach breakeven if released together,” she shared her thoughts with Something Haute regarding the release of the movie.

“Ideally someone should take the step of pulling back in the interest of the entire industry and this is currently being discussed and pondered upon by all of us. I am considering to move seriously although my film is ready to go as I feel that is the right thing to do in the benefit of all films but the final decision of moving the release date is not confirmed yet,” she added.

However, Momina concluded that she’ll confirm by the end of this week. “Once it’s decided will let you know.”

What do you think? Do you feel the filmmakers should delay the release?
