Since the coronavirus lockdown, Pakistani cinemas have seen a drastic downfall. But now that things are slowly getting back to normal, and cinemas are starting to open up, great things are coming their way.
The first Pakistani movie to be released since the lockdown is none other than filmmakers Nabeel Qureshi and Fizza Ali Meerza’s Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad. The movie’s release date was moved from Eid ul Azha 2020 because of the extension of the lockdown period.
But now both Nabeel and Fizza believe it’s about time they release the much-anticipated movie. In an interview, Nabeel asked:
People are going to restaurants and malls. Why wouldn’t they go to the movies?
And Fizza added saying:
We may have fewer screens now but if local content doesn’t release because of this, there will be even less screens by next year. We can’t let that happen.
Remembering the time they released Na Maloom Afraad, to limited screens in 2014, Fizza said:
And yes, there may be less cinemas but that will be the case even next year. Why wait? I do think that people will come and see the movie. We are all social animals and we naturally gravitate towards going out, meeting people and doing things together.
The movie Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad features Mahira Khan and Fahad Mustafa as lead actors. The latter will be seen as a cop. Stay posted for more details.
