Few weeks ago, UK-based director Jamil Dehlavi, who directed famous Jinnah movie starring Christopher Lee, announced that he was going to work on another project in Pakistan.
His last project in Pakistan was Jinnah that was a biographical film based on the life of the founder and first Governor General of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah.
According to reports, Jamil Dehlavi is in Pakistan these days working on his untitled project. He has taken some big names onboard and seems that celebrated actor Sheheryar Munawar is one of them.
Sheheryar, who was busy with director Wajahat Rauf’s upcoming film, has reportedly walked out of the film and joined the cast of UK-based independent filmmaker’s project.
The actor had shot some scenes of the movie that is written by Chupan Chupai director Mohsin Ali and produced by Zayed Sheikh. However, it has been reported that Sheheryar was facing some date clashes and apparently he chose Dehlavi’s film over Wajahat Rauf’s project. The movie also stars Hania Amir and Kiran Haq in pivotal roles.
