Did you know?: Ishq Khuda to be screened at Norway film festival

22:56 By Lollywood Online No comments

Lollywood seems to be on a roll. Recently released commercial film Ishq Khuda — which fared well at singe-screen cinemas in the country — will be screened at the Bollywood Film Festival in Norway on September 11.
The admiration this movie has received from across the border will definitely boost the confidence of other film-makers in Pakistan, says film’s director Shahzad Rafique. The star-studded cast includes Shaan, Meera, Ahsan Khan and Wiam Dhamani.
“This is a premier film festival which has been known to screen top films from South Asia,” film’s assistant director Hasnat Afridi tells The Express Tribune. He reveals that Ishq Khuda is the only Punjabi film which has been selected for screening alongside popular Bollywood movies such as Kai Po Che! and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.
Festival’s director Nasrullah Qureshi invited Ishq Khuda’s team and decided to screen the movie due to the media attention the film has received in Pakistan and other countries. The festival has developed a strong fan following amongst Bollywood buffs and according to Afridi, getting an invite was an achievement in itself. Due to short notice however, it is still unknown if members of the cast and crew will be able to attend it. “We are waiting on the visa but I think it might be too late,” Afridi adds.
