Sherdil continues to win steal hearts before the film’s release. The film’s producer and writer Nomaan Khan has announced that 20 percent of the film’s proceeds will go to the PAF’s Shaheed Fund.
Perfect timing, it seems. On one hand, the PAF action drama Sherdil is creating a lot of positive buzz, following the recent Indo-Pak tensions.
On the other hand, Sherdil is aiming to mobilize people for a patriotic cause, and give something back to the brave jawaans who keep our borders safe.
Ticket sales in Pakistan won’t be the only source of revenue. Sherdil has bagged the leading distributors of foreign films for its Middle East shows as well. They even have a Meekal Zulfiqar action figure from the film!
The movie’s marketing machine is in full swing, releasing this song online:
After two romantic numbers (yes we wanted to see Armeena because we missed her in the trailer!), they released Sanson mein baqi hai dum a new patriot anthem, just in time for Pakistan Day.
The Buzz Around Sherdil
Sherdil’s teaser trailer came out on February, 21st. The full-length trailer was dropped on March, 5th. The trailer created more buzz than other films set to release alongside it Laal Kabotaar and Project Ghazi.
Its no surprise that Sherdil has been receiving a lot of love. While the trailer and the patriot anthem stole our hearts right away, this recent decision by Noumaan Khan to donate their proceeds, it has us smitten.
Sherdil release date is March 22nd, the eve of Pakistan Day. Mansha Pasha and Ali Kazmi’s Laal Kabootar will also be released on the same date.
We finally have a reason to hit theaters rather than binge on Netflix.
