Yalghaar: Pakistan’s newest most expensive film

03:51 By Lollywood Online 1 comment

The writer and producer of highest grossing Pakistani movie Waar, Dr Hassan Rana directs, writes and produces upcoming movie Yalgaar. It is an action movie (just like Waar), stars Shaan (just like Waar) and is expected to be the most expensive movie till date; so it might turn out to be just another ‘Waar’.
Speaking to HIP, a Yalgaar crew member revealed around 50 crores have been invested in the venture while Waar was a 20-crore venture. The producer Dr Rana is aiming for higher box office numbers (than Waar) this time around.
Shooting for the film is about half way through and Shaan, Adnan Siddqui play the characters of SSG Commandos and newcomer Aliyezah will be seen opposite Siddiqui as his wife. Humayun Saeed, Ayesha Omer, Bilal Ashraf and Sana Bucha’s characters are not yet known.
With an ongoing operation in North Waziristan, audiences are receptive to army-based. Let’s hope the movie exceeds expectations and is somewhere close to Alpha Bravo Charlie or Sunehray Din.
Siddiqui was excited to be part of the film and regretted his decision to turn down Waar.

“My role has all shades of patriotism embedded into it,” Siddiqui revealed, ““Dubai based actress Aliyezah is playing my wife in the film. She is Dr Hassan’s discovery and has done acting course from New York and will be a good addition to our industry.”
Earlier, reports of Waar’s director Bilal Lashari accusing his producer (Dr Rana), of not being fair, were doing rounds. Lashari was upset about not getting his due share from the film’s profit but Rana turned down the allegations suggesting that Lashari had earlier agreed upon Rs15 million but later on asked for 25% share in profits.
