Sami Khan’s comeback seems to have truly solidified with a successive run in 2019 and an upcoming film lined up for a 2020 release, Yaara Vey.
“The film is 85% shot. We aren’t supposed to tell anything about the characters [just yet]; telling about the characters is like revealing half the story.”
The cast includes Sami Khan, Faizan Khwaja, Aleeze Nasser, Javed Sheikh, Marina Khan and Ali Sikander. The film is written by Althea Kaushal, the dialogues are by Mahwash Ijaz and is directed by Manish Pawar. It’s produced by Elite Films in Dubai and shot in Thailand.
But what’s the film about? Khan won’t tell just yet.
“It’s a mix; we cannot disclose the story yet.”
Ajaz revealed, “Yaara Vey is a romantic film, one that has given me the opportunity to work with a lot of talented people. As a first time screenwriter, it’s quite exciting to be a part of a film that has my childhood heroes, aka Marina Khan and Javed Sheikh. Really hope the audiences love the film.”
Talking a little bit about her character, Nasser shared, “It’s a girl’s journey of self discovery, her learning of new dimensions of life and unlearning of the old. Also a shift in thinking about love: going from safe and by the books to exciting, unpredictable and uncertain!”
She added, “Sami is great at his craft, he is super passionate about his work and a supportive co-star. I enjoyed working with him for sure.”
Khan confirmed the film is set to finish filming later this year in time for a 2020 release. Let’s see what they’ve got cooked up!
