Judging by 7 Din Mohabbat In’s poster, we’re expecting to see Mahira Khan and Sheheryar Munawar playing interesting characters in the film. The story revolves around Neeli (Mahira) who is Tipu’s (Sheheryar) cousin and last hope to help him find love.
“You won’t get to see Sheheryar Munawar or Mahira Khan in 7 Din Mohabbat In, it’s a very character heavy film,” revealed the leading man, these days known as Tipu.
“I’d like to believe I’ve completely lost myself. While shooting I was not the same person, I started walking differently. I was talking differently. In fact, I had certain mannerism during those days with which my friends and family couldn’t connect with. The whole setting and world of Tipu is different from the real Sheheryar Munawar,” he laughed when we asked him to compare real and reel life personalities.
Adding further he said it’s a torture for those close to actors and who are living with them. Every 6 months they have to transform themselves according to the characters or roles they’re playing for different projects. “You do tend to take a little bit of that character back home after work.”
Speaking of different roles, we were now curious to know if he could personally relate to his commitment-phobic character in Parey Hat Luv.
“Two different directors are going to put two different characters on the screen. And like I said, I cannot relate to Tipu, I don’t see my self as a commitment-phobic guy either.”
“I own up to my responsibilities and I’d say I’ve been lucky to be both behind the camera as well as in front at 28/29. For that one needs very strict discipline, regimentation and commitment in life I guess.”
We’re excited to see Sheheryar play characters that seem poles apart. While 7 Din Mohabbat In is all set to release this Eid ul Fitr, Parey Hat Luv is being scheduled for Eid-ul-Azha 2019.
