Humayun Saeed opposes simultaneous release of 3 Pakistani movies

Pakistani superstar Humayun Saeed expressed his views regarding the release of three Pakistani movies in an upcoming week. This Eid is not just about celebration only and there is much more to have fun.

Three much-awaited movies are all set to release by the end of this month which include Fahad Mustafa and Mehwish Hayat’s Load Wedding and Hamza Ali Abbasi-starrer Parwaaz Hai Junoon is Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2 (JPNA2) – the sequel to 2015’s Jawani Phir Nahi Ani.

JPNA 2, the film, directed by Nadeem Beyg, stars Humayun Saeed, Fahad Mustafa, Ahmed Ali Butt, Vasay Chaudhary, Sarwat Gilani and Mawra Hocane, amongst others. “It picks up three years after JPNA. So there are bigger problems faced by the characters and we’ll see how they handle the situations,” said Butt.

One of the most noticeable elements of the trailer is the inclusion of Pakistan and India’s continuous tussle, albeit in a comedic manner. Saeed said this was important as there is yet to be a film which tackles the issue lightly. “We aren’t portraying anyone as enemies but rather, promoting friendship between the two countries.”

The leading actor of JPNA 2 Humayun Saeed, while giving an interview shared that “I’m being honest, I’m not happy about it. But it’s happening so I wish all three films the best,” he said. “Of course, it hurts the business because all films have potential and simultaneous releases will hurt all three. But let’s see what happens.”

On the other hand, Fahad Mustafa two movies are releasing at the same time and he seems happy with this option. Also, Mustafa explained the dates had been decided even before shooting started. According to him, this works in his favor and that he’s in talks with both Nabeel Qureshi and Beyg for future projects but would “work with them if they don’t release their films on the same date.”

So, which movie are you going to watch out of the three releasing next week?
