Yasir Nawaz has a new production in the works and it’s a comedy titled Mehrunisa V Lub You.
Speaking to Images Yasir said, “The film is a comedy, a rom-com basically, but it also has a small message which we’ve told through the comedy as the overall tone of the film is very light and fun.”
However, when asked about the plot of the film, he simply said, “If I tell the story, even a one liner, then all the suspense and fun would be ruined. So I’d rather avoid that for now.”
Getting into the details of the film’s music, he said the project will include a song called ‘Badalna Hai’ penned by Indian poet Sampooran Singh Kalra popularly known as Gulzar, sung by Indian playback singer Sukhwinder Singh.
“Gulzar has written one song for us so far, and Sukhwinder has sung it. We’re in talks with him to do another song. Maybe we’ll have two songs by him, but we don’t have the second singer finalised for the track. He has sent us the song with make-shift vocalists so that we can continue shooting but for now no one has been selected,” he added, saying that the final vocalist(s) will be revealed in a couple of weeks’ time.
All the songs have been composed by Seemab Hussain, and apart from Sukhwinder, no singers have been finalized as of now.
“We have a ‘celebration song’ in the film in which we’ll have a guest appearance by Amna Ilyas,” said the director.
Along with donning the director’s cap, Yasir will also be producing the film with Hassan Zia and Nida Yasir. The writer is Saqib Sameer and the cast includes Javed Sheikh, Danish Taimoor, Sana Javed, Saqib Sameer among others.
The shoot has started and is currently taking place in Karachi. Some scenes will be shot in the northern areas as well.
