Zulfiqar Sheikh and Tasmeena Sheikh teamed up for Succh and it’s finally wrapping up shooting soon. The real-life couple started their film Succh back in 2017.
The duo’s film Succh was intended to launch their daughter Elysee Sheikh’s acting career. However, the project ended up running into delays.
Recently Elysee and Zulfiqar Sheikh started posting behind-the-scenes footage of the shooting.
So now that we know that Succh has resumed shooting, we also got to know who the other co-stars are. Child star Arisha Razi Khan is among the Succh cast.
Succh cast Asad Zaman, Elysee Sheikh and Humayun Ashraf in lead roles. While Humayun Ashraf is famous for drama serials like Ab Dekh Khuda Kya Karta Hai, Asad Zaman has been missing from the acting scene for a while now.
Originally Danish Taimoor was supposed to play the lead. When he wasn’t game for the project, Hijrat star Asad Zaman was booked for the role.
“The film was scheduled to be shot last year but my health deteriorated and I was not that fit to make the film then, hence it faced delays but we are completing it now. Also originally I had a partner from Pakistan who insisted on casting Danish, but as I am the sole producer now so I wanted an actor who fits the role and Asad is a perfect fit.”
The movie is currently being shot in Scotland, with a one day shoot scheduled for Pakistan as well. Production is expected to wrap up by May, 2nd.
Succh release date is predicted for 2019 or early 2020.
