In conversation with.. Ho Mann Jahaan

Aamna Haider Isani manages to bring the cast of HMJ together for a madcap interview that allows us to read between the scripted lines!   It took some serious skills in persuasion and coordination to get these guys together. With the release of Ho Mann Jahaan a mere few weeks away and promotional activities at an all time high, the cast and crew was all over the place, all the time. You could spot them at colleges and cafes, cineplexes and hotels, talking about the film and building up the hype with very little leftover time to sit down and talk about it. But we did manage to get Mahira Khan, Sheheryar Munawar, Sonya Jehan, Adeel Hussain and Asim Raza in one...

Exclusive! BTS at Ho Mann Jahaan rehearsals

'Shakar Wandaan Re' dubsmashes are all the rage these days but we've been holding on to this exclusive footage of the Ho Mann Jahan's leading trio - Mahira Khan, Shehryar Munawwar and Adeel Husain - since summer when we went behind the scenes at Asim Raza's studio in Karachi and caught the action, live.

FPW pulls out the BIG GUNS on Day 3

…Some of Pakistan’s best bridal couturiers play to their strengths   By Aamna Haider Isani   Day 3 featured some very big names in Pakistani fashion – Umar Sayeed, Faraz Manan and last but not least, Nilofer Shahid. And all three of them pelted out some fabulous wedding wear and artistic couture. An unexpected surprise was Nauman Arfeen, whose simple, rustic collection provided a much-needed dose of menswear that didn’t look like something out of a Tim Burton movie. Other than the top names, Zaheer Abbas put out a neat but forgettable show and Delphi by Nida Tapal showcased some lovely examples of how crochet can be incorporated into formal wear; a jarring palette let the collection down. Zainab Chottani unraveled a colourful collection...

Ho Mann Jahan’s release postponed

Asim Raza’s eagerly anticipated feature film, starring Mahira Khan, Shehryar Munawar and Adeel Hussain in lead roles, will now hit cinemas after Moharram. Projected as an Eid-ul-Azha release in a star-studded press conference earlier this year, Ho Mann Jahan will now make it to cinemas by the end of November, at the earliest. Producer/Director Asim Raza explains his reasons…       Why has the release of Ho Mann Jahan been postponed?     Asim Raza:Jawani Phir Nahi Aani is releasing on Eid-ul-Azha and it’s a big Pakistani film that we don’t want to go head to head with. We’d happily go up against any Indian film but I feel there needs to be harmony within the Pakistani film industry. We’ll wait for Moharram to pass by peacefully...
