Pakistani actor, singer-songwriter, and musician Ali Zafar would feature in an upcoming action-comedy movie by renowned television and commercial music video director Ahsan Rahim.
The film will also mark the feature film directorial debut of Ahsan Rahim, who has previously proved his mettle by directing some of Pakistan’s most iconic music videos such as Laga re, Sajania, Kismat Apne Hath Main, Preeto, Dosti and the much popular Ufone ads.
“He always wanted to make an action-comedy as the genre excites him and he believes he is unexplored in the Pakistani market”, Ahsan said of Ali.
He shared how Ali and he decided to team up for this film over food.
“Ali and I first discussed the idea having hardcore desi food and as it developed it got him more and more excited. So much so that he pulled out of a big Bollywood project and pushed his own film DeoSai for later as it requires a certain look and training. I am excited to be working with him as I find him to be an extremely versatile and talented actor and feel he can carry this role best.”
Asked about the leading lady opposite film, Rahim said, “We are currently in process of auditioning the right actor to star opposite to him.”
Last time Ali Zafar and Ahsan team up for AAG song from his album “Masty.”
