While we wait for mega starrer films like ‘Kambakht’, ‘Hijrat’, ‘Yalghaar’ and ‘Bin Roye Ansoo’ there is a new addition to our long list – ‘Karachi Se Lahore’ – a romantic comedy set in a road trip.
Produced and directed by Wajahat Rauf of Showcase Productions the film has been written by Yasir Hussain. The cast includes Pakistan’s recent export to Bollywood Rashid Naz, Javed Sheikh, Shehzad Sheikh, Ayesha Omer and Ahmed Ali.
Lead actor Shehzad Sheikh of ‘Main Hoon Shahid Afridi’ fame said “It’s basically a romantic-comedy which revolves around a bunch of friends who plan a journey from Karachi to Lahore in a jeep.”
“The adventurous voyage features interesting incidents all inter-connected with each other.” Talking about the characters Sheikh says “There is no supporting character, everyone has a specific role, although Ayesha and me are the main couple in the film,”.
The launching event of the movie was recently held at Marina Club, DHA Karachi where cast and crew of the film formally announced their association with the film.
What made the hunk and his legendary father sign the film?
“The script is quite good and we all are thrilled to work on it,” says Shehzad.
‘Bulbulay’ actress Ayesha Omar describes her character as  a young middle class girl who is brave and gutsy. “I live in Sheikh’s neighborhood in the movie and when he plans to go out on an adventurous road journey I join him and his friends. ”
Explaining the reason to sign this movie, Omar says that it was the wonderful script which attracted her attention.
“After reading the script I immediately fell in love with the character – it took me only a few seconds to convince myself that I wanted to be a part of it. Plus. Wajahat is an old friend, so it’s always great to work with people you know and are comfortable with”
Among the event attendees were legendary satirist Anwar Maqsood who gave the team members his best wishes. The shoot for the film will start next week.
