Pakistan Is Making a Comedy Movie About Abhinandan

We think Shamoon Abbasi just needed an excuse to drink some fantastic chai.


Last week Vivek Oberoi announced to make a movie on Indian pilot Abhinandan Varthaman. Ever Since then, cinema lovers in the country have been urging Pakistani filmmakers to make a film on what actually happened on February 27.

It seems that those prayers have been answered. Its none other than Khalil ur Rehman Qamar who is about to get our wish fulfilled.

The Pakistani playwright and director has announced to make a comedy movie on Indian Wing commander Abhinandan Varthaman. Yes, it’s true.

The ‘Legend’ Himself

On February 27 this year, Pakistan Air force had shot down MIG-21 of the Indian Air force. As a result of that Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was captured by the Pakistani forces in Azad Kashmir.

Later on, as a goodwill gesture, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan handed over the downed Indian pilot to Indian authorities after 60 hours of detention. Those hours of detention also included some fantastic cups of tea, and we think this is something that deserves a mention in this comedy as well.

Khalil ur Rehman Qamar’s another directorial venture Kaaf Kangana is also slated for a worldwide release on October 25. The cast of the film includes Sami Khan, Eshal Fayaz, Ayesha Omar and others.

Meanwhile, Shamoon Abbasi is gearing up for the release of his thriller movie Durj. The movie is scheduled to release on October 10 in foreign countries. It will be hitting cinema screens in Pakistan a week later after it’s international release.
