It seems that Muhib Mirza’s long-awaited Ishrat Made in China is inching closer to release as the team shared the film’s promotional ‘first look’ on its Instagram account on Tuesday.

The film, that is largely a spin-off of Mirza’s 2006 satirical TV series Ishrat Baji, stars Muhib himself alongside Sanam Saeed, Sara Loren, Ali Kazmi, Shamoon Abbasi, Nayyar Ejaz, Shabbir Jan, Imam Syed, Salman Saqib (Mani) and Mustafa Chaudhry. It will also mark the acting debut of acclaimed designer Hassan Sheheryar Yasin (HSY).

Ishrat Made in China was announced in January 2019 but later stalled and is now gearing up for release soon.

The hit 2006 cult-classic television show Ishrat Baji is returning soon as a feature film. We can’t wait to see the much loved Ishrat Baji, a character made famous by Muhib Mirza, on the big screen soon,” read the caption on Muhib’s look for the comedy.

The team also introduced Cake actor Sanam Saeed’s look. “To all those who were looking forward to seeing the marvellous acting of Sanam Saeed on-screen, buckle up! The most bankable actor will be earning the appreciation and praise on screen with her commendable acting in Ishrat Made in China.”

Earlier in April, the cast and crew of the film called for help as they found themselves stuck in Thailand due to the global lockdown. The shoot for Ishrat Made in China had kicked off in there before the situation took a serious turn. As a result, half the cast of the film was stuck in Thailand with no way of returning home.

Back then, Abbasi had told The Express Tribunethat the team was waiting patiently for Pakistan to open its air space. “PIA revealed the list of countries’ flights that will be allowed and Thailand wasn’t one of them,” he said. “Not to mention, Thailand is also expected to close its air space soon. And if that happens before PIA resumes its flights, then we are doomed.”

But now, they are all back in Pakistan.
