Yasir Nawaz spends 2 crores on a set for Mehrunisa I Lub You

06:25 By Lollywood Online No comments

Yasir Nawaz is gearing up for his next movie titled Mehrunisa I Lub You starring the gorgeous Sana Javed and handsome Danish Taimoor. This will mark Javed's debut on the big screen after having walked out on Rangreza due to family issues. The movie's shooting is expected to begin soon and with the date coming close, the director along with his producer wife Nida Yasir is busy getting a massive set constructed - it is said to be one of the largest sets ever created in Pakistan's history and will cost a whopping Rs2 Crores!

According to Express News, the director is making original sets on real locations where he has created an entire neighborhood of Burns Road too - one of Karachi’s busiest areas - to give the movie a unique touch. For a while the need to get sets made for movies had been brushed aside but with Nawaz about to begin his shooting soon it seems the director is quite keen on bringing the old tradition back. Apart from the set, even the buildings which have been constructed have been made by thermopile and wood to give it a realistic feel.
It is the first time in the history of Pakistani cinema that a producer is willing to spend so much on one set considering there are more which need to be constructed too.
Yasir Nawaz's first film, Wrong No, was a romantic comedy which earned the title of a fullpaisa wasool film as it gave tough competition to the much hyped film, Bin Roye, and was one of the most popular films in the history of Pakistani cinema in terms of box office numbers.
Mehrunisa I Lub You is a romantic comedy too but with a very strong message and besides Danish Taimoor and Sana Javed, it will also have Javed Sheikh in the lead. The story has been written by Yasir Nawaz himself along with Saqib Sameer who has collaborated with him on the screenplay; production is of course by YNH which is a production company owned by Yasir Nawaz, Nida Yasir and Hassan Zia who also produced Wrong No.
With producers willing to invest heavily in making movie sets, a thought which comes to our mind is that hopefully the same attention will also be given to the production value as well as the story line because at the end of the day no matter how lavish your sets or exotic your locations are, it is the story content which makes a movie a hit or a flop.
