DUBAI: Waar, a bilingual Pakistani movie, is all set to release on Dec.12, where the movie actors will grace the red carpet at the Grand Cinema, Wafi City.
According to well-placed sources of the local cinema organisers, the much anticipated movie from Pakistan will be shown in a number of cinemas all over the UAE. “The red carpet and the premier will be attended by the prominent Lollywood actors including the film cast, Shaan, Shamoon Abbasi and pop singer Ali Azmat along with the Waar director Bilal Lashari,” according to the source.waar
The movie, Waar (strike) was released all over Pakistan on Eid Al Adha this year (Oct.16), and within the first three days it grossed a record of Rs40 million at the box office. For the last couple of years, it was the only film which resulted in a huge success for the local film industry known as Lollywood.
Waar, the high budget film is made by the prominent director Bilal Lashari, who is known for his successful videos of the country’s prominent singers. The film is based on true incidents between the years 2009 to 2012, mainly focusing on the terrorist activities by insurgents and the Taliban, resulting in Pakistan’s nightmare-war on terror — which claimed thousands of lives all over the country.
Shaan plays the lead role as a retired Army officer. Joining him are some of the country’s finest actors from the silver screen as well as the film industry like Shamoon Abbasi, Meesha Shafi, Ayesha Khan and Ali Azmat. The filming was carried out in Lahore, Islamabad and Swat valley besides a couple of shoots in Turkey and in Italy. The production was finalised by one of the country’s state-of-the-art studios.
