Pakistani cinema is on the verge of revival as more and more talented directors and film-makers prove their mettle in the field.

Asim Raza’s debut project, Ho Mann Jahaan is one such movie we should keep an eye out for. Currently in the making, unlike many other movies in Lollywood, this film does not focus on politics. Based on the relationship dynamics between three friends, it is going to be the perfect epitome of an entertaining yet meaningful Lollywood flick.

I got the chance to meet the cast and crew of this much-awaited movie and tried my best to get as much information as possible. Here is what I found out:

1. 90% of the shooting has been completed, that too in a span of only 50 days.

2. Mahira Khan, Sheheryar Munawar and Adeel Hussain are the lead actors of the movie. While they have done projects together, this will be the first time all three actors work alongside one another in a project.

    Seems to be an executive summary of a TV drama with TV actors in it. A subject chosen not to attract masses of Pakistan instead focusing on glamour and rich. Why shouldnt I watch a drama serial at my home instead with same subject and actors?Recommend
